Hello Lambdans;

A new binary drop of Java 8 SE with lambdas (b61) is available at

This build includes the latest libraries APIs. 

Next week we will be releasing another binary drop which updates the javac compiler and includes other stabilization fixes.  

Immediately following the next release we will be converting the compiler and source to use the EDR default method syntax. ie.

public void foo() default { bar(); } 


public default foo() { bar(); }

We expect the disruption of migrating the existing source to last only a single day.
