My Ubuntu version is 15.04 with ROS Jade. Initially there is Gazebo 5 but I just wonder whether I should install Gazebo 7 or not. On one hand, I want to take advantage of the new features of Gazebo 7. On the other hand I am not sure if a gazebo-ros packages for ROS Jade and Gazebo 7 is available because the integration of Gazebo and ROS is of great importance to me. And help is appreciated.

Yes, it is. Just type these commands in the terminal to install gazebo7-related packages with ROS Jade:
sudo apt-get install ros-jade-gazebo7-msgs
sudo apt-get install ros-jade-gazebo7-ros
sudo apt-get install ros-jade-gazebo7-plugins
sudo apt-get install ros-jade-gazebo7-ros-pkgs

Note that the ros-jade-gazebo7-ros-pkgs package is a meta-package that will install the other three. Also remember to setup the packages.osrfoundation.org repo in order to use them. Full information is available in the tutorial: http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=ros_wrapper_versions&cat=connect_ros
