i hope i am on the correct list, did not found a user related one,
please tell me if i am wrong.
Got some question about this changeset:

There was a check added that the maximum chunk size does not exceed 2
Can you tell me the intention of this check? Before this change it was
possible to handle e.g. RIFF Wav-Files which are greater than 2 GiB,
after that change it will result in an exception.

So how to handle files which are greater than 2 GiB now? Downgrading to
JDK 7 or to a version before this change is not a "nice" solution ;-).

thanks for some enlightenment about this changeset.

thanks and kind regards
