Java SE 8 Schedule: March 2014

The Expert Groups and Engineering Teams are working hard on Java SE 8. Here's the current state:

  • The target release date for Java SE 8 is 2014/3/18. Further schedule details are available on the JDK 8 Project pages.
  • The delay was created by focus on fixing security issuesMaintaining the security of the Java Platform always takes priority over developing new features, and so these efforts have inevitably taken engineers away from working on Java 8Maintaining the security of the Java Platform always takes priority over developing new features, and so these efforts have inevitably taken engineers away from working on J, and the desire to get Project Lambda in the release.
  • Project Jigsaw is slated for the next train. There will be some progress in Java SE 8 toward the convergence of the higher-end Java ME Platforms with Java SE.
Thanks to Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group and Java SE Spec Lead, for keeping us informed through his blog at http://mreinhold.org/blog/.
