Under current plans, the current dev efforts will be split off into
two separate releases. This will benefit features that are already
mature for release next year and but allow for currently planned as
well as new ("++") features to be ready for JDK 8.
One particular feature I was thinking of under the ++ column is
support for tail call optimization. This particular Da Vinci
sub-project is apparently not fully engineered and spec'ed at the
moment. But I was thinking with the recent rearrangement of the
releases, if it could be developed for the JDK 8 release?
