From the release notes:

"Added support for Java 7 language features like multi-catch, try-with-resources, and the diamond operator. These features require version 19 or higher of the Build Tools. Try-with-resources requires minSdkVersion 19; the rest of the new language features require minSdkVersion 8 or higher."

I know that some folks have been waiting for the SDK to catch up to JDK7, so this should be welcome news.
