Hi Stefan,

*JDK 9 Early Access* b162 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/>  is
available on java.net, summary of  changes are listed here

There is one fix for a bug reported by Open Source projects since the
last availability email  :

  * b161 - JDK 8176265 Method overload resolution on a covariant base
    type doesn't work in 9

Other change that maybe of interest:

  * b162 - JDK 8176503 security-libs Disable SHA-1 TLS Server Certificates

*Better tools for adjusting to strong encapsulation -* please read Mark
Reinhold's email on this topic [1]
* *Quality Outreach Report for March 2017 *is available [2], many thanks
for your continued support
and welcome to the new projects!

***Schedule - **JDK 9 Rampdown Phase 2*: Proposal accepted [3].
The overall goal of this process is to ensure that we fix just the bugs
that must be fixed in order to ensure a successful release.

Oracle's JRE and JDK Cryptographic Roadmap has been updated since last
