8140481 is a build issue that should be fixed shortly.

8138878 breaks through resource encapsulation.  jake b86 fixes InternalError and throws MissingResourceException if it attempts to get a bundle in java.desktop named module.

There are two RFEs related to signing and certificates
  8058778: New APIs for some keytool functions
  8056174: New APIs for jar signing

I have added this comment in 8058778 for the security team to look into.  You can subscribe to security-dev at  where the discussion for these RFEs will be.
