Minor nit,
in the VM spec part, section 2.1, the attribute ModuleVersion is mentioned while it has disappeared
(the module version is now a field of the Module attribute).

I will modify ASM next week to be in sync with the spec, i do not expect any problems.

I still think that encoding a version for the requires inside the Module attribute is now a good idea (cf my previous message).

Happy Christmas everyone,

> I've posted a draft EDR specification for your review, here:
>    http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~mr/jigsaw/spec/
> This document gathers the collected changes proposed for the JLS, the
> JVMS, the Java SE API, and various low-level interfaces (JNI, JVM TI,
> and JDWP).
> The intent of the EDR is to provide a comprehensive snapshot of our work
> to JCP participants who do not follow our activity closely.  It by no
> means implies that we are finished -- we'll continue to work through the
> issues already identified, and on issues raised by feedback yet to come.
> I plan to submit this to the PMO as the Early Draft Review Specification
> on 10 January.  Please let me know by 17:00 UTC on Monday, 9 January if
> you think any changes are required, or if you need more time for review.
