Hi Andy,

Early Access build for JDK 8u60 b26 is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed here.
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 is available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here .

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.
