I am pleased to announce that binary builds of the JSR 308 Reference
Implementation are available at http://jdk8.java.net/type-annotations/.
Please see the Type Annotations project page for a link to the JSR 308
Specification. There is also a changelog, which is important to review
as there have been significant spec changes in 2012.
The builds were generated from the type-annotations/type-annotations
forest on 9/9. This forest is regularly updated from jdk8/jdk8 and
jdk8/tl. Werner can provide exact details.
On a related matter, the jdk8/tl forest (primarily the langtools repo)
now supports repeating annotations. The support has made its way to
type-annotations/type-annotations, so the binary builds support
repeating annotations _on declarations_. Repeating annotations _on type
uses_ should be supported within a month.
