Hi Andrew,

As per Sean's earlier mail on release plans for 8 
we're using a similar approach for future JDK 8 Updates releases as was 
used for 7u76 and 7u72, with new releases accompanying corresponding CPU 
releases, as those releases did for 7u75 and 7u71.

Just like the final phase of the JDK 7 Updates Project, that means there 
are no separate forests in our Mercurial repositories for those few 
remaining releases.

Some folks may be wondering how they get fixes pushed into 8u66 so just 
to reiterate, all you have to do is follow the critical approval process 
[1] and the maintainers will take care of the rest!
