Given the link to the binaries in the blog, I assume you're referring
to the proprietary Oracle release and not OpenJDK?  There also seems to
be a reference to at least one feature I believe isn't part of OpenJDK
(Java Mis­sion Con­trol and Java Flight Recorder) and a lack of reference
to at least one feature that I believe is (the PPC/AIX port).
