Subject Early Access builds for JDK 8u122 b02 , JDK 9 & JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw b140 are available on java.net
Date Sat, 22 Oct 2016 13:56:29 GMT

Hi Florian,

Early Access b02 <https://jdk8.java.net/download.html> for JDK 8u122 is 
available , summary of changes are listed here. 
<http://www.java.net/download/java/jdk8u122/changes/jdk8u122-b02.html>

Early Access b140 <https://jdk9.java.net/jigsaw/> (#5625) for JDK 9 with 
Project Jigsaw is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed 
here. 
<http://www.java.net/download/java/jigsaw/archive/140/binaries/jdk-9+140.html>

Early Access b140 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/> for JDK 9 is 
available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here 
<http://www.java.net/download/java/jdk9/changes/jdk-9+140.html>.

A couple of items to point out with regard to b140:

 1. A fix for Cyclic interface initialization causes JVM crash is
    included in b140
 2. We are requesting feedback on a change that went into  JDK 9 b140

    The java.io.FilePermission class was changed to remove pathname
    canonicalization from its creation,
    along  with a system property to revert the behavior back to way it
    worked in the previous JDK release.
    We do this mainly for performance enhancement so that there is no
    need to consult the file system every
    time a FilePermisson is created. If you use a security manager and
    file permissions then you should read
    the details as described on the jdk9 mailing list [1]

    Feedback is requested via core-libs-dev@openjdk.java.net


The new GA date of JDK 9 has been updated on the JDK 9 Project page [2], 
further details in Mark Reinhold's email [3].
