The King is dead. Long live the King!

Well, the phrase may not be entirely apt, but it does carry the right sentiment, especially to the monarchists amongst us.

As you may have read, Peter is moving on to new adventures, but you can be sure that there are still plenty of adventures still to be had with javac, and the rest of us on the javac team are looking forward to carrying on with everything that is coming up.

With the compiler being open sourced last year, and the recent announcements regarding OpenJDK, and JDK 7 ahead, these are exciting times, albeit somewhat turbulent at times. So, stay tuned for more details, and in the meantime, thanks go to Peter for all his contributions.

I thought he was a Count, not a King.

final Royal r = (Count) peter; if(r instanceof King) { bow(); }

Counts are not royalty, (they are merely appointed by royalty), so the example regrettably fails to compile.

incompatible types
found: Count
required: Royal
