Subject: Proposed schedule for JDK 9

Here is a proposed schedule for JDK 9:

2015-12-10 Feature Complete
2016-02-04 All Tests Run
2016-02-25 Rampdown Start
2016-04-21 Zero Bug Bounce
2016-06-16 Rampdown Phase 2
2016-07-21 Final Release Candidate
2016-09-22 General Availability

The dates here are meant to leave sufficient time for broad review and
testing of the significant features of the release, in particular the
introduction of a module system and the modularization of the platform,
while maintaining the cadence of shipping a major release about every
two years.

The milestone definitions are the same as those for JDK 8 [1].

Comments from JDK 9 Committers are welcome, as are reasoned objections.
If no such objections are raised by 23:00 UTC next Tuesday, 12 May, or
if they're raised and then satisfactorily answered, then per the JEP 2.0
process proposal [2] this will be adopted as the schedule for JDK 9.

(This information is also available on the JDK 9 Project Page [3]).
