With the new team members getting up to
speed and lots of help from the community (thanks Stephan, Jesper and Andy!),
we were back on track to have the features in the compiler for the original
GA in September. But, we also knew that there are still ongoing spec discussions
and expected a delay to get those remaining issues sorted out.
My plan is to provide a feature patch
against Kepler SR2 once Java™
8 goes GA and then ship the Eclipse Java™ 8
support along with Luna in June 2014.
