As I mentioned in last week's e-mail about the OpenJFX 8u40 rampdown
plan, we are preparing to create an OpenJFX 9-dev repo and intend to
open it up later this week. Until we fork the 8u40 stabilization repo we
will continue to automatically forward-sync changes from 8u to 9, so any
bug that is fixed in 8u-dev prior to that time need not be separately
fixed in 9. I will send a notice to the alias just before we stop doing
this forward sync.
I will send a follow-up message when the new repo is open, and what the
rules will be for pushing changes. Initially, we will just target bug
fixes that are considered too risky for 8u, along with any changes
needed to support JDK9 features or build time changes; no new features
or enhancements yet.
