Lambda-related changes to collection api

I would like to learn more about how the collection library will change when
lambdas are introduced in JDK 8.  Specifically:
1. What methods are being considered? (ie, map, filter)
2. For a map-like method that can produce a collection of a different type,
what will the return type be?  Will => str.length) return
an ArrayList, or an Iterable?

Any info/links would be much appreciated.  I'm sorry if this is the wrong
