Notable changes in JDK 11 EA builds since last email:

Build 8: 

If you have a library that uses the Selector API heavily then now would be a good time to test it out. [1] 

Build 7

The VM option "-XX:+AggressiveOpts" is deprecated in JDK 11 and will be removed in a future release. 

Build 6:

JDK-8193033 : remove terminally deprecated sun.misc.Unsafe.defineClass. Users should use the public replacement `java.lang.invoke.MethodHandles.Lookup.defineClass` which was added in Java SE 9. [2]
