I haven't seen bytecode obfuscators in many years and don't know if
anyone has tried one with 53.0 class files. However, if the tool is just
renaming private or package-private methods then it should work as
before. I could imagine a "module-aware" obfuscator having more freedom
than before in that it could change public types in non-exported
packages (it would need to be careful with any service providers in
those packages of ourse). If you use one a regular basis then best to
try it out and report back.
