Azul is happy to announce the availability of the September snapshot of OpenJDK 9 today.

These binaries represent a source snapshot matching OpenJDK build 136, reflecting source up to about September 14.

This release includes the following JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEP):

JEP 292: Implement Selected ECMAScript 6 Features in Nashorn.

As announced on the OpenJDK developer mailling list, the lead architect of OpenJDK 9 proposed another four month delay, pushing GA out to July 2017. Read the original announcement in the developer list archives.

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/
