with my ASM hat,
as dalibor said, we are changing the cadence.
- since ASM4, ASM is fully backward compatible,
- we are also moving toward continuous deployment since September using more modern development tools, git, gradle, gitlab-ci and adding a bunch of new tests
- upcoming VM spec changes are developed in different branches [1, 2, 3] and we try to follow all VM specs modification proposed by the different OpenJDK projects, i'm personally an expert for the project Amber and Valhalla.
