Is FORTRESS an Improvement over Java?

Guy Steele describes his FORTRESS programming language as an improvement over FORTRAN and seems to imply that is equivalent to Java, but is it?

Steele has been quoted as saying "FORTRESS is to FORTRAN what Java is to C/C++". But if FORTRESS is as generic as it also has been described and if it is as good at easing the pains of developing concurrent applications as some claim (Hal Stern and James Gosling for example), then it may be worth considering as a replacement for Java also, and not just for FORTRAN?
