Should the Java language stop adding new features?

About the language growing pains java seems to be in when trying to keep up with languages like C# and Ruby, I disagree with Bruce Eckel when he described new languages as the correct place for fundamental new features.

New languages are a cool thing, but old languages must keep evolving. They must be agile and elastic enough to accept new trends. For much comfortable as it may look, a closed language tends to be a dead language, no matter how popular it is.

We should be as economical and ecological as we can with our languages :)
