Want JDK8 to be Great?

November 25, 2013 By: Tori Wieldt

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

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."
