Hi Dalibor,

I have couple more suggestions to expand the great JDK 9 Outreach even

1. The major version token in the output of  javap -verbose SomeClass, returns
52 for both JDK 8 and JDK 9 compiled sources. It would be helpful to
mention this so everyone is aware of it, as no new byte codes have been
introduced in 9. In theory I could run JDK 9 compiled code in the JDK8
environment (sometimes with a little tweak - again is it advisable to do
this or not, upto you if yoi want to add this as well). Please let me know
if all this is true.

2. setAccessible - this is now not accessible with the new JDK 9 EA builds
? Has this been recent or since long. Not sure if this is mentioned
specifically in the outreach documentation.
