Happy New Year!
The Maintenance Draft Review  contents for the Java SE 8 Platform
JSR (337) was posted to jcp.org on 31 December 2014 . The contents
correspond to the updates outlined in the announcement  of our intention
to conduct the Review and this approval request  to deprecate the
Extension and Endorsed-Standards Override Mechanism. Note that there is
no change to the values returned by the system properties
java.specification.version and java.vm.specification.version . The
Review ends on 2 February 2015 with the Ballot running from 3-9 February 2015.
As in the original announcement, assuming that the Maintenance Review
Ballot succeeds, Oracle will produce a Maintenance Release  of JSR 337
which includes an updated Specification, RI, and TCK. The Maintenance
Release is expected about the same time as JDK 8 Update 40 , March 2015.
