JDK 8u72 was released last week [0]. Thanks to all those who have
contributed towards it.

OpenJDK 8u72 source code is available from the jdk8u master forest via
use of the 'jdk8u72-b15' mercurial tag. I plan to update the OpenJDK 8u
project page with latest status.

If you're packaging this release, it could be useful to let subscribed
members know about it via communication on this mailing list. Please
continue to contribute fixes back to the jdk8u-dev forest [1] which is
already gathering changes for 8u76. Note that 8u76 based early access
binaries from Oracle are already available [2]
