Hello Rory,
Just in time ! We announced the JDK9 full compatibility less than 2 days

The compatibility effort was significant, but shared with the whole Java
ecosystem (as we created bug reports to Ant, Groovy, EqualsVerifier,
Geotools, FindBugs/SpotBugs, ErrorProne, etc.).

Aside Jigsaw, the three JDK9 changes that impacted us most were:
1) The Math improvements to Math.cos in b105 (JDK-8143353, see
https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/11889 +
https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/13387). It took us a long time to spot
our floating point calculations changed in JDK9. But we noticed a huge
performance gain, and more accurate results too. This is a huge
improvement, thanks!
2) The deprecation of _MASK constants in favor of _DOWN_MASK constants
(JDK-8143077). It was not easy to switch because ActionEvent does not
provide extended modifiers (there's no getModifiersEx() method in this
class. I think it should have been added in 9, could you please consider it
in 10 ?).
3) The impossibility to disable the "proprietary API warning" in 9 (we
disabled it with non-supported option -XDignore.symbol.file in 8). Until we
switch our codebase to a version of Java providing the new certificate
creation API (JDK-8058778), we must keep our current implementation based
on sun.x509 packages. Currently the best I can do is tell our Jenkins
instance to filter this warning.

Congrats for this major release of Java,
Best regards,
