     It's been quite a long time and it seems jdk7 is doing well now. I 
know there is still several days before its release, anyway, Alan or 
someone else, would you please tell me if we can start work on jdk8, and 
restart the discussion on the bugs like this (I remember there are still 
some to be discussed)? Thanks!
