Subject: JDK 9: General Availability
Date: Thu, 21 Sep 2017 12:21:33 -0700 (PDT)
I'm pleased -- nay, thrilled! -- to announce that JDK 9 is now Generally
Available. We've identified no P1 bugs since we promoted build 181 seven
weeks ago so that is the official GA release, ready for production use.
GPL'd binaries from Oracle are available here:
(There are links on that page to Oracle's commercial binaries for those
who are interested.) I'm sure that binaries from other implementors will
be available in short order.
The key feature of this release is, of course, Project Jigsaw, about
which I've written a bit more over on my blog:
Jigsaw is not, however, the only feature! There are many other excellent
additions and improvements including, but not limited to:
Improved Process API http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/102

The complete list of features is on the JDK 9 Project page:
Thank you to everyone who contributed to JDK 9, whether directly or
indirectly. It's been a long road, but it will have been worth it.
This release lays a strong foundation for the future of Java.
