Date Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:03:26 GMT

Hi Rick,

Early Access build for JDK 8u60 b26 <http://jdk8.java.net/download.html> 
is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed here. 
<http://download.java.net/jdk8u60/changes/jdk8u60-b26.html?q=download/jdk8u60/changes/jdk8u60-b26.html>
As we enter the later phases of development for JDK 8u60, please log any 
show stoppers as soon as possible.

Early Access build for JDK 9 b75 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/> is 
available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here 
<http://download.java.net/jdk9/changes/jdk9-b75.html?q=download/jdk9/changes/jdk9-b75.html>.

With respect to ongoing JDK 9 development, there are two new Candidate 
JEPs I'd like to draw your attention to.

Firstly, Mark Reinhold has put forward JEP 260: Encapsulate Most 
Internal APIs to make most of the JDK's internal APIs inaccessible by 
default but leave a few critical, widely-used internal APIs accessible, 
until supported replacements exist for all or most of their functionality.

You can find the JEP here: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/260 - and an 
introductory e-mail and discussion thread on the OpenJDK jigsaw-dev 
mailing list, starting at 
http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jigsaw-dev/2015-August/004433.html . 
If you would like to provide additional feedback, please join the 
jigsaw-dev mailing list, and contribute to the discussion there.

Secondly, Mandy Chung has put forward JEP 259: Stack-Walking API to 
define an efficient standard API for stack walking that allows easy 
filtering of, and lazy access to, the information in stack traces. You 
can find the JEP here: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/259 .

If you would like to provide feedback on JEP 259, please join the 
OpenJDK core-libs-dev mailing list and contribute to the discussion there.

Finally, we are looking for feedback via a survey on Java Style 
Guidelines Please see here for more details.
