Hello Lambdans;

A new binary drop of Java 8 SE with lambdas (b62) is available at

This build includes the latest libraries APIs and latest javac compiler. The libraries are maturing quickly and there is a lot of activity in this area. In the next couple of weeks some of the library work will start to migrate to jdk8 mainline. Follow corelibs-dev ( for review requests and feedback. This list will be cc:ed for jdk8/tl integration review requests.

As previously announced we will soon be converting the lambda javac compiler and jdk sources to use the EDR default method syntax. ie.

public void foo() default { bar(); } 


public default foo() { bar(); }

We expect the disruption of migrating the existing source to last only a single day. Try to get any unpushed lambda/jdk changesets finished to avoid "merge hell".
