Hi Florian,

Early Access b136 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/> for JDK 9 is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed here <http://www.java.net/download/java/jdk9/changes/jdk-9+136.html>. Early Access b136 <https://jdk9.java.net/jigsaw/> (#5506) for JDK 9 with Project Jigsaw is available on java.net, summary of changes are listed here <http://www.java.net/download/java/jigsaw/archive/136/binaries/jdk-9+136.html>.

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

 * 8165723 - b136 - core-libs JarFile::isMultiRelease() method returns
   false when it should return true
 * 8165116 - b136 - xml redirect function is not allowed even with
   enableExtensionFunctions

NOTE:- Build 135 included a fix for JDK-8161016 which *has introduced a behavioral change to HttpURLConnection, more info:*

The behavior of HttpURLConnection when using a ProxySelector has been modified with this JDK release. Currently, HttpURLConnection.connect() call would fallback to a DIRECT connection attempt if the configured proxy/proxies failed to make a connection. This release introduces a change whereby no DIRECT connection will be attempted in such a scenario. Instead, the HttpURLConnection.connect() method will fail and throw an IOException which occurred from the last proxy tested. This behavior now matches with the HTTP connections made by popular web browsers. But this change will bring compatibility issues for the applications expecting a DIRECT connection when a proxy server is down or when wrong proxies are provided.
