Early Access of Java SE 8 for ARM Now Available

An Early Access of JDK 8 including JavaFX on Linux for ARM processors is now available for immediate download from Java.net. As Java Evangelist Stephen Chin says, "This is a great platform for doing small embedded projects, a low cost computing system for teaching, and great fun for hobbyists."

This Early Access is provided to the community so that you can provide us with valuable feedback on the ongoing progress of the project. We wanted to get this release out to you as quickly as we can so you can start using this build of JDK 8 on an ARM device, such as the Raspberry Pi (http://raspberrypi.org/).
