Subject Early Access builds for JDK 8u60 b24 and JDK 9 b72 are available on
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:41:33 GMT

Hi Stefan,

Early Access build for JDK 8u60 b24 <> 
is available on, summary of changes are listed here. 
As we enter the later phases of development for JDK 8u60, please log any 
show stoppers as soon as possible.

Early Access build for JDK 9 b72 <> is 
available on, summary of  changes are listed here 
Note: b72 includes 8081708 
<> - Change 
default GC for server configurations to G1

As described in JEP 248 <>, switching to 
a low-pause collector in JDK 9 such as G1 should provide a better
overall experience, for most users, than a throughput-oriented collector 
such as the Parallel GC, which is
currently the default.

A call for feedback and data points 
regarding this change went out on the hotspot-dev 
<> mailing 
list, where
such input should be provided.
