Yes, for development we have switched. Our release engineering is in the process of switching. We have switched now because the openjdk8 main switch is expected to happen before lambda integrates into openjdk8 main. ie. We will have to switch before integrating.
I have been ensuring that the old build continues to work at each binary drop as a fallback/backup process. This unfortunately means that between binary drops it may break.
We have had good success using the new build on linux, solaris and mac. We've previously validated the build on Windows but it was not checked closely in the last binary drop. (There have been no problem reports though).
For lambda repos, I strongly recommend the new build.
