JDK 11 Early Access build 8 available

Rory O'Donnell Oracle, Dublin Ireland
Hi Stefan,

**JDK 11 EA build 8, *****under both the GPL and Oracle EA licenses, is
now available at **http://jdk.java.net/11**. **
*

  * Newly approved Schedule, status & features
      o http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk/11/
  * Release Notes:
      o http://jdk.java.net/11/release-notes
  * Summary of changes
      o https://download.java.net/java/early_access/jdk11/8/jdk-11+8.html

*Notable changes in JDK 11 EA builds since last email:*

  * Build 8:
      o If you have a library that uses the Selector API heavily then
        now would be a good time to test it out. [1]
  * Build 7
      o The VM option "-XX:+AggressiveOpts" is deprecated in JDK 11 and
        will be removed in a future release.
  * Build 6:
      o JDK-8193033 : remove terminally deprecated
        sun.misc.Unsafe.defineClass. Users should use the public
        replacement `java.lang.invoke.MethodHandles.Lookup.defineClass`
        which was added in Java SE 9. [2]

**


*SURVEY: The HotSpot Serviceability Agent (SA) *[3]

  * If you have used, or have (support) processes that utilize the
    Serviceability Agent or related APIs, then we would definitely
    appreciate if you would complete this survey:

Regards,
Rory
