This post will be updated with new features targeted at the upcoming Java 9 release (last updated: 9/9/2014)
The OpenJDK development is picking up speed: after the Java 8 launch in March 2014, we’re expecting to enter a 2 year release cycle. Java 9 will reportedly be released in 2016, and an early list of JEPs (JDK Enhancement Proposals) that target the release has already been published. Moreover, some JSRs (Java Specification Requests) are already being worked on and we’ve also added a hint of other features that might be included.
The flagship features are the Jigsaw project, significant performance improvements and long awaited APIs including: Process API updates, JSON as part of java.util and a money handling API. For those of you who want to be on the bleeding edge, JDK 9 early access builds are already available here.
In this post we’ll keep updating around the main new features for Java 9 and what they’re all about. So stay tuned for additional updates!
