Thanks for that feedback, Peter. I don't have any model for predicting the Java 9 adoption rate other than a comparison with the adoption rate for Java 8: https://plumbr.eu/blog/java/java-version-and-vendor-data-analyzed-2016-edition Adoption tends to ramp up after the first maintenance release.Dear Rick,well, nice to know and I do not see a reason to object but does anybody have ideas what Java 9 adoption will look like(?).

The current schedule for Java 9 calls for a GA date some time this autumn: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/p

I would like to propose that 10.14 be the last release family which runs on Java 8. The 10.15 family would only run on Java 9 and higher. I expect that we would produce a 10.15.1 release some time after the first maintenance release of Java 9 goes GA, probably late in 2018.
