Hi Lisa,
I know that ARM- and Embedded-Version are closed-source. But I hoped that
the information, what OpenJFX-Changeset it is based on, would be public.
For someone like me, who is following the 8u-dev repo carefully, it would
increase confidence in the release, if I knew, which bugs were fixed.

In this specific case, I would like to know if this patch ( has made it
in to this release.
