Azul is happy to announce the availability of the August snapshot of OpenJDK 9 today.
These binaries represent a source snapshot matching OpenJDK build 131, reflecting source up to about August 10.
This release includes the following JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEP):
In general, OpenJDK 9 is on the cusp of reaching feature completeness. The umbrella JSR is filed and initial vote of JCP-Exec Committee approved the spec changes. Simon formally joined the Expert Group. Formal spec work should commence here: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk9/spec/
As a reminder, formal support programs from Azul will extend to cover Zulu 9 once we reach GA. Until then, we welcome all informal Q&A here on the Zulu forum.
Please provide any feedback about this snapshot, posted at http://zulu.org/zulu-9-pre-release-downloads/
