Subject JDK 9 EA Build 170 is available on jdk.java.net
Date Fri, 19 May 2017 10:29:09 GMT
Hi Florian,

*JDK 9 Early Access*  build 170  is available at the new location : - 
jdk.java.net/9/

A summary of all the changes in this build are listed here 
<http://download.java.net/java/jdk9/changes/jdk-9+170.html>.

Changes which were introduced since the last availability email that may 
be of interest :

  * b168 - JDK-8175814: Update default HttpClient protocol version and
    optional request version
      o related to JEP 110  : HTTP/2 Client.
  * b169 - JDK-8178380 : Module system implementation refresh (5/2017)
      o changes in command line options
  * b170 - JDK-8177153  : LambdaMetafactory has default
    constructorIncompatible change,
      o release note:  JDK-8180035

*New Proposal - Mark Reinhold has asked for comments on the jigsaw-dev 
mailing list *[1]

  * Proposal: Allow illegal reflective access by default in JDK 9

    In short, the existing "big kill switch" of the `--permit-illegal-access`
    option [1] will become the default behavior of the JDK 9 run-time system,
    though without as many warnings.  The current behavior of JDK 9, in which
    illegal reflective-access operations from code on the class path are not
    permitted, will become the default in a future release.  Nothing will
    change at compile time.


Rgds,Rory
