Here's a small but important milestone: The contents of the an mlvm
patch to the JVM, hotspot/anonk.patch, have been (after testing and
review) pushed to a HotSpot integration repository:
Unlike the JSR 292 work on method handles and invokedynamic, there is
no public API for this functionality at present; it is for
implementation use only. That's why it's a minor milestone...
An experimental API for using anonymous classes is defined in the jdk
branch of the mlvm patch repository. This API will not be staying in
java.dyn, since that package is reserved for JSR 292 work.
