Hi i just read that Nashorn is being deprecated (JEP 335
<>). First of all, that is a drag. Two
(ish) questions:

1) So what is the last planned release of Nashorn? J9? It wasnt' clear from
the JEP.

2) Is this deprecation specifically to make room for GraalJS? That is, is
it the Oracle plan to sideline Nashorn and push forward GraalJS a
fully-supported, not-just-for-research GraalJS?

Thanks. Important stuff to know for planning for projects dependent on
Nashorn / JS support in the JVM!
