A draft of the Specification is available here:


This draft includes the following:

    - Spec, section 4 "Component JSR Specifications": MRs for 199 and 269 only

    - Spec, section 6 "Modules": New subsection "Relaxing strong
      encapsulation" corresponding to JEP 396

    - Spec, section 7 "APIs removed": Add API corresponding to CSR 8249644

    - Spec, section 8 "APIS proposed for removal":
        o Remove API which was moved to section 7
        o Add APIs corresponding to CSRs 8250245, 8250584, 8254324, 8254808,
          and 8256644

    - Annexes 1 and 2: Updates based on build 29

    - Annex 3:
        o Add PDFs for JLS and JVMS DRAFTS
        o Add references to JEPs 394, 395, and 397

    - Annex 4 - 11:
        o Add diffs for narrative specs (e.g. JNI, RMI Spec)

The next JCP milestone is PR, scheduled for January 2021.  As usual with
milestones, we'll take a snapshot of the current Specification (without
changebars) and submit it for publication.  I anticipate PR submission to the
PMO early January, for publication later that month.

diffs, and latest RI binaries may be found on this page:
