There have been a number of fixes to bugs reported by Open Source projects since the last availability email :

    * 8038348 - b137 - Instance field load is replaced by wrong data Phi
    * 8041480 - b137 - ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when JTable
      contains certain string
    * 8145542 - b137 - The case failed automatically and thrown
      java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException exception.
    * 8151725 - b137  - [macosx] ArrayIndexOOB exception when
      displaying Devanagari text in JEditorPane

There are two proposals requesting feedback via mailing lists :

 - More proposals for open JPMS issues [1]

    * One proposal to call out is #AwkwardStrongEncapsulation as this
      proposes to change setAccessible(true) so that it can't be used
      to break into non-public types/members in exported packages.
      This is a non-issue when using setAccessible to get access to
      non-public types/members of classes on the class path but will
      be an issue for code that uses this method to break into
      JDK-internals. We would appreciate as much help as possible
      testing these builds. If InaccessibleObjectException is thrown
      then examine the stack trace (run with
      -Dsun.reflect.debugModuleAccessChecks=true to uncover failed
      access attempts in code that shallows exceptions). If it looks
      like a library is attempting to access a non-public method or
      field of a platform class and make sure to *submit a bug in the
      issue tracker for the library.*

 - Proposal to Reorganize source classes in src.zip by modules [2]

    * This proposal might have a compatibility impact on IDEs or other
      tools that look in src.zip
    * Feedback via the jigsaw-dev mailing list

Other points of interest:

          o Recorded Presentations
    * JDK 9 Schedule change proposal
          o for proposed schedule proposal see [3]
