We have been working to convert 9-dev to build with the current JDK 9 preview. This has been a significant undertaking, and will result in a cleaner, safer build, but will also require changes by all developers.
Tuesday Nov 1 - monster webrev will be posed for review
Monday Nov 7 -
review comment are due,
change will be merged into mainline, though this may be delayed by circumstances till Tuesday
ACTIONS to get ready, download and install
*  Gradle 3.0+ (3.1 would be a good choice)
*  JDK 9 preview build 142 +
It probably makes sense to keep the older Gradle 2.11+ around for a bit, as 3.0 will not work until the conversion.
The current repo works properly with JIGSAW_HOME set to JDK9 build 142+
More emails will be sent that highlight the direct impacts to developers (for example jfxrt.jar will not longer be around).
This commit will resolve the JBS  JDK-8161704: Switch to Jigsaw-aware boot JDK for compiling FX 9
