As per the preliminary 8u76 timeline [1], the 8u76 Rampdown 2 milestone
is approaching. Please aim to have all 8u76 planned fixes addressed by
the third week in January. The 8u76 RDP2 build is planned for the week
of Jan 28th and fixes need to be in jdk8u-dev 1 week before that for PIT 

Once we enter RDP2, we'll fork the JDK8u master forest to create a JDK
8u76 stabilization forest. Only showstopper bugs should be considered
for fixing in 8u76 after that milestone.

I would also like to bring attention to the Oracle early access 
binaries, and invite other distributors who build binaries based on the 
OpenJDK JDK 8 Updates Project to do the same in this thread:
