A new version of the Type Annotations (JSR 308) Specification is available at
The changelog appears below.
Refactor JLS grammar to clarify that throws and catch clauses contain type
uses that can be annotated, even though type parameters and arrays are
forbidden in such locations. See the productions for QualifiedType,
UnannQualifiedType, and QualifiedTypeList.
Remove unused target_info method_reference_target.
Give examples of interaction between multiple @Target meta-annotations and
fully-qualified type names.
Explain why instanceof uses offset_target but cast uses type_argument_target.
Move examples of classfile annotations, which are not normative, into an
appendix so that Section 3 contains only normative text.
