Subject Early Access build 136 for JDK 9 & JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw are available on
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 10:25:54 GMT

Hi Florian,

Early Access b136 <> for JDK 9 is 
available on, summary of  changes are listed here 
Early Access b136 <> (#5506) for JDK 9 with 
Project Jigsaw is available on, summary of  changes are listed 

There have been a number of fixes to bugs reported by Open Source 
projects since the last availability email  :

  * 8165723 - b136 - core-libs JarFile::isMultiRelease() method returns
    false when it should return true
  * 8165116 - b136 - xml redirect function is not allowed even with

NOTE:-  Build 135 included a fix for JDK-8161016 which *has introduced a 
behavioral change to HttpURLConnection, more info:*

The behavior of HttpURLConnection when using a ProxySelector has been 
modified with this JDK release. Currently, HttpURLConnection.connect() 
call would fallback to a DIRECT connection attempt if the configured 
proxy/proxies failed to make a connection. This release introduces a 
change whereby no DIRECT connection will be attempted in such a 
scenario. Instead, the HttpURLConnection.connect() method will fail and 
throw an IOException which occurred from the last proxy tested. This 
behavior now matches with the HTTP connections made by popular web 
browsers. But this change will bring compatibility issues for the 
applications expecting a DIRECT connection when a proxy server is down 
or when wrong proxies are provided.

JDK 9 Outreach Survey*

In order to encourage and receive additional feedback from developers 
testing their applications with JDK 9,
the OpenJDK Quality Outreach effort has put together a very brief survey 
about your experiences with JDK 9 so far.

It is available at****

We would love to hear feedback from you!
