Surprised no-one's(?) posted about this yet, but interesting news on the Java front - new Java every 6 months and Oracle shipping OpenJDK as standard.   Grin

About the only thing I care about is whether we're getting value types any time soon tbh. And ongoing JavaFX enhancements.
Though I'm quite pleased the Shenandoah GC will be coming as standard because G1 has been a massive disappointment.

Well, it might mean we get value types faster when they're ready!  As for Shenandoah, isn't that primarily like G1 really designed for large (multi-GB) heaps?  I'm still hoping that CMS gets un-deprecated and even improved (which judging from various messages on dev lists might happen).  It still seems to be the better option for low-latency, small-heap stuff in my experience.
