Java 7/JDBC 4.1 and Java 8/JDBC 4.2

It has now been 2 years, 1.5 months since Java 7 / JDBC 4.1 was released. This maintenance release contained some minor, though still useful, revisions to JDBC that are unusable in MySQL because the MySQL driver only supports JDBC 4.0.

Now Java 8 / JDBC 4.2 is just around the corner (final public release candidate in January, GA in early March). It contains some very important updates, including (most importantly to me) support for the new Java 8 Date & Time API types (java.time JSR 310).

What is the time frame for getting a release that supports JDBC 4.1 and then a release for JDBC 4.2? JDBC 4.1 should have been available a long time ago. I really hope I don't have to wait 2 or 3 more years for JDBC 4.2 support...
