What happened to System/Process.getPid() ?

I'm sorry if I missed this, but I can't seem to find any information about
what happened to the RFE "provide process ID" [1]. This umbrella bug
report/RFE is marked as 'fixed', but I can't see that the "getPid" part is
included in the current build of JDK8 (build 62).

The "process destroy/getPid" RFE was previously listed under JDK8 features,
but now it's gone.[2]

And I can't find any information about "getPid()" being dropped from JDK8

In his review request for the "System.killProcess" part of this RFE, Rob
McKenna wrote:

"As per the bug report the toString/pid work has been left to be
completed separately."[3]

What happened to "System/Process.getPid()" ? Is anyone actively working on
adding this to JDK8 ?
