Support for TLS 1.1 & 1.2

Has there been any move to support TLS in oracle JRE? In terms of the continued use of SHA-1, here is a useful site that summarises various recommendations and most state that SHA-1 should be phased out now.

I can see that openjdk now includes TLS 1.2 which is great. We are looking to replace all use of SHA-1 but use the standard JRE not openjdk.

We had made some progress, but some higher-priority issues came up and
it got back-burnered.

With all the transitions going on around here, we're now regrouping on
the question of *BOTH* TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support.  We're going to be
re-proposing TLS 1.1/1.2 for a future JDK release.  We've been pulling
together our own reasons, but having actual customer feedback will help
our case for completing this work.  Any information you can supply about
your needs may be added to our proposal.  Feel free to reply directly to
me if you'd rather not discuss your needs in a public forum.
