[Link] Oracle To Ship Java 8 in March, Even With Bugs

Post icon  Posted 21 January 2014 - 07:39 AM


In a posting to a Java mailing list Monday, Mathias Axelsson, Oracle JDK 8 release manager, emphasized intentions to ship the upgrade, which is based on Java Platform, Standard Edition 8, in March. But at this stage of the release process, only "showstopper bugs" are being considered for fixing in the initial JDK 8 release. "Non-showstopper bugs will be deferred to a later release in order to ensure we keep to the JDK 8 schedule and can ship on March 18."

Java has been released with bugs before. Java SE 7 was released in 2011 with compiler problems. There also have been ongoing issues with Java client security, although Oracle has been acknowledging the issues and working to fix them, and on Tuesday, the company plans to release 36 fixes for Java SE. Oracle took over stewardship of Java when it acquired Java founder Sun Microsystems in early-2010.

The new JDK looks awesome so far.

The most interesting one to me would be the java.util.stream

I would hope that they fix the Java Drive By (JDB) exploits with 8, and make it impossible.
But then again, everything can and will be hacked/cracked/exploited.
Good find.
