FC means that no RFE/Features can be pushed without approval from the JDK 9
Release Team. The updated schedule was published to the OpenJDK community in
December last year by Mark Reinhold.

Thank you. It was very helpful. It gives people outside Oracle a far
better idea of what all this stuff means.
Of course, any project has a schedule and I totally respect the right of the
project leads to make such decisions. However, I have to make my (tedious,
sorry) statement that this is a community project, and that important
decisions which affect the whole community have to be discussed or at least
explained. I have a responsibility as a member of the Governing Board who
represents the wider OpenJDK community to keep reminding people of this.
>From a more personal point of view, the AArch64 project is working on
integrating intrinsics which are our versions of code in other ports,
particularly x86. I don't know if simply adding these intrinsics to ports
counts as a "new feature". In my opinion it does not.
