No, I do not have any specific questions about java 9 and browsers. I just
wanted to know what your plans were.

Thank you for all these clarifications, which answer my questions.

Hi Jérôme,

    So far since Java 9 is not released yet, and the plans for the module
system are still going through the JSR approval process (see:
https://jaxenter.com/jigsaw-vote-java-9-interview-134091.html), I haven't
tried to address anything with Java 9 yet.  I have run our own large Pivot
application with a very early release of Java 9 (without the module system)
and it worked fine.  Do you have specifics of things that don't work or you
think need enhancement?

    As far as browser support goes ..... That would be entirely on Oracle's
side.  There is absolutely nothing we could do without Java support for
something other than the older browser plugin.  But see here that this will
be deprecated in Java 9:
https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/jdk9_plugin.xml  I have tested and Java
Web Start still works with Pivot, so that is one option we still have....
Some browsers still work (Safari if you enable it, Firefox if you jump
through hoops, Internet Explorer (but not Edge)).  Do you have other
specific questions?

Hello Roger,


Thank you for that.


I would like to know if it is planned, on your side, to manage the
compatibility to java 9 on the one hand and the non-compatibility with
browsers in general on the other hand ?
Thank you.


Best Regards,

Jérôme Serré

Subject: Upcoming 2.0.5 release


Hi all,

                I have pushed out the remaining issues assigned to me for
the 2.0.5 version, leaving only the code-signing issue for Sandro.  So, we’d
like to start the process of getting 2.0.5 out the door.  There are many bug
fixes in this release (including the show-stopper Version parsing bug from
Java 8u131…), so it will be good to have this release done.

                I have also been making a ton of changes for 2.1 to support
the Input Method Editors (for Far-Eastern language support) for TextInput,
TextArea, and TextPane, as well as a lot of internal code improvements,
including fixing the Nashorn scripting engine (Java 8) compatibility.  So,
this will be a good release as well, but probably not ready for another few
