Hi Florian,

Early Access build for JDK 8u72 b05 <http://jdk8.java.net/download.html> 
is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed here. 
<http://download.java.net/jdk8u72/changes/jdk8u72-b05.html?q=download/jdk8u72/changes/jdk8u72-b05.html>

Early Access build for JDK 9 b88 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/> is 
available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here 
<http://download.java.net/jdk9/changes/jdk9-b88.html?q=download/jdk9/changes/jdk9-b88.html>.

Early Access build for JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw b86 
<https://jdk9.java.net/jigsaw/> is available on java.net.

Changes for JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw b86 : -

  *   New options for the jdeps tool: -genmoduleinfo to generate draft
    module-info.java files, and -ct to do a compile-time analysis of
    references (i.e., follow all references leaving all classes in each
    referenced JAR file) rather than the default run-time analysis
    (which only follows references leaving referenced classes).
  *   jlink no longer does service binding by default.
  * Class::getPackage fixed to return null for array types, primitives,
    and void (bug reported by Chris Newland).
  * Improved messages in IllegalAccessExceptions thrown by core reflection.
  * java -verbose now works with -Xpatch .
  * The special token ALL-SYSTEM can be used with the -addmods option to
    add all system modules.
  * New methods Module::{addUses,canUse}, which are dynamic equivalents
    of service-use clauses in module declarations.

Rgds, Rory
