Hi Mario,

I am usually reluctant to have build tools changes in an update release, 
too, so we will certainly take your concern very seriously.

As for JavaFX 8 entering maintenance mode, we expect to do most of our 
work over the next few months in 8u20 (rather than 9), since we are 
deferring a lot of bugs out of 8. Any new features will be done in 9, 
but probably not until after 8u20 is in very good shape.
