Hello list, tracking "JEP 213: 
Milling Project Coin" has undergone
a revision to include one more small feature namely the support for 
private methods in interfaces
tracked under

As will be recalled, this feature was briefly in consideration for 
inclusion in Java SE 8 as part of the effort
to add support for Lambda Expressions, but was withdrawn to enable 
better focus on higher priority
tasks for Java SE 8. It is now proposed that support for private 
interface methods be undertaken thereby
enabling non abstract methods of an interface to share code between them.
