Hi All,

Early Access build for JDK 9 b27 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/>  is 
available on java.net, summary of changes here 

I'd also like to use this opportunity to point you to ongoing work in 
OpenJDK on Project Jigsaw.

     - JDK 9's source code is now modular: 

     - Mark Reinhold's post providing some context is available on his 
blog: http://mreinhold.org/blog/jigsaw-phase-two

     - The first two Project Jigsaw JEPs have been posted at 
http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/200 & http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/201 .

You can also track the progress on the JEPs in the JDK Bug System now - 
the corresponding JBS issue for JEP 201 is 
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8051619 , for example.

Comments, questions, and suggestions are welcome on the jigsaw-dev 
mailing list. (If you haven’t already subscribed to that list then 
please do so first, otherwise your message will be discarded as spam.)
