All tests pass using yesterday's snapshot, that is.

java.lang.reflect.Executable has been introduced as new base class for
Method and Constructor.  It has been added six months ago and I'm pretty
sure it is there to stay.

It looks as if they follow the tradition of Java7 and make source and
target default to the latest version.  Right now -target 8 creates Java7
class files but I'd expect that to change (and javac claims -target 7
was not compatible with -source 8).

Too much copy-paste "reuse", I plan to fix that but want to write a few
tests first.
