Last year CERN said they would be announcing their results the following summer. After 10 years of pouring through data by 2,100 members of the CMS team and 3,000 members of the ATLAS team, they are now 99.9996% sure what they found is in fact the Higgs, though they don't know yet if there is more than one form of the Boson. Further tests and studies need to be done and will be done to explore this extremely important scientific breakthrough in more detail.
On another note, here's an interesting fact: even though the LHC has likely achieved higher temperatures they have never published them, but the highest temperatures ever published come from RHIC (or the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider). When smashing gold atoms together at near the speed of light, the quark/gluon plasma temperatures reached an incredible 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit (4 trillion degrees Celcius) which is 250,000 times hotter than the inside of our sun.
Finally, I hope every American had a pleasant 4th of July. It is not only a major day in the history of our country but now will be known as a major day throughout the scientific community.
