The specification in the JEP talks about a java.util.Version, that I presume will replace the sun.misc.Version, and that will fully implement an API to access the version string and all it's parts, according to the JEP definition. Also, the native interface will have to be changed to accommodate a version number with an arbitrarily number of dot separated parts. These changes will be done later on in the verona/stage forest.
