Is Eclipse Indigo supposed to be able to use Java 1.7?

Yesterday, I uninstalled Eclipse Indigo. I then installed the new Java 1.7 (specificall, jdk-7-windows-x64.exe) on my 64-bit Windows 7 computer. I adjusted my path environment variable so it points to the new jdk 1.7. My regedit now shows Java 1.7 to be the current version of Java.

I then re-installed Eclipse Indigo. In Eclipse, when I go to Window/Preferences/Java/Compiler, the Compiler Compliance Level drop-down shows options 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6, but not 1.7. If I compile a program with a string for a switch control expression (a new feature in Java 1.7), I get a compilation error.

Note:

When I use a different IDE (TextPad), I can compile and run my Java 1.7 program (the one with a string for a switch control expression).

I load Eclipse (successfully) using the command:
C:\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vm "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin\javaw" -vmargs -Xmx256M

1. Is Eclipse Indigo supposed to be able to use Java 1.7?
2. If yes, how can I get Eclipse to use Java 1.7?
3. If no, when will Eclipse be able to use java 1.7?

Thanks,
John

Java 7 support for Eclipse is not part of the Indigo release. To get the
current state of work you can
- download any 3.8.0 release (e.g. M1)
- or download a 3.7.1 M or RC
- or update JDT in your 3.7.0

For more details, refer to
- http://wiki.eclipse.org/JDT_Core/Java7
