In order to let community members know what is going on with the bugs,
etc., targeted to Lombard (FX 8), here is the current status.
We are continuing to ramp-down the FX 8 release in conjunction with the
ramp-down of JDK 8. Here are the key dates to be aware of for FX fixes
that are going into FX 8:
10/24 - 12/4 : P1 - P3 bugs may be fixed, with code review, but no
additional approval needed
12/5 - end of release : Only release-critical bugs may be fixed, release
team approval needed
This means that any P4 - P5 bugs that are not fixed by 10/23 will be
deferred out of FX 8. It also means that any enhancement requests (Tweak
or Feature) regardless of priority will likely be deferred out of FX 8.
Exceptions will require release team approval, and such approval is
Note that we are currently using "Van Ness" as a placeholder for both
JDK 9 and JDK 8u releases. We will soon be adopting the same release
versions as used by the JDK.
