no b56 here and a tag id moving from jdk8 to lambda then jdk8.

Where did your b56 drop come from ?

> Hello Lambdanites!
> Another update (b56) of the "Java™ Platform, Standard Edition 8 Developer Preview with Lambda Support" is now available at:
> This update includes;
> - A resync with the OpenJDK 8 mainline repos
> - Updates to JSR166 concurrency lib using the JSR166e
> - Significant enhancements to the Hotspot and JDK runtime support for lambdas
> - The javac compiler and java.util lambda libraries are unchanged since b50
> The next binary drop is expected the second half of next week. It will include updated javac and libraries. javac was in an unstable transition at the time b56 was prepared so skipped this release. java.util lambda libraries work has been focused on the "it2-bootstrap" branch which will be merged into the default branch later this week.
> As always, comments, feedback, insights and criticism are welcome and encouraged.
