Want JDK8 to be Great?

Uncle DukeDo you want JDK8 to be great? Duke needs *your* help to find issues and find them now! JDK 8 B116 EA Build is now available for download & test.

As Java 8 gets closer to the endgame we all need to help test and report issues. So please, add it as a JVM to your CI build, try running it at home and have a play with Lambdas!

You can get more details and resources on all of this at http://adoptopenjdk.java.net

As Java Champion Martijn Verburg said, "If you want Lambdas nice and early then testing Java 8 now *really* helps the whole Java community get a great release on day one."

Feedback Wanted: Java SE 8

Oracle releases periodic early access snapshots of the binaries and documentation for JDK 8 snapshots on java.net. These raw snapshots let you review and contribute to the Java SE platform as it is being developed. Please download the latest preview updates JDK 8, the next generation of the Java Development Kit.  Kick the tires, give it a test drive and share your feedback. You can get the source code through the OpenJDK jdk8 project. The JDK 8 Features page lists the JEPs currently funded and targeted to JDK 8.

Please use the Project Feedback forum if you have suggestions for or encounter issues using JDK 8.

If you find bugs in a release, please submit them using the usual Java SE bug reporting channels, not with the Issue tracker accompanying this project. Be sure to include the complete version information from the output of the  java -version  command.    

The Java community is an integral part in continuing to improve the quality of Java releases.  We're looking forward to your participation!
