Changes to signatures?

Hey everyone!

Does anyone know whether Generic Signatures will be updated for JDK 10, 
or will they stay as-is?

Also, one thing that's unclear to me is whether a method like (sorry, I 
don't speak Java):

T[] arrayOf<any T>(int length) { ... }

will still emit "Object" as a return type in the signature. I remember 
that arrays not having a useful common supertype except Object was a 
pretty ugly thing in the past. Any changes here?

Thanks and bye,

Simon
