Hi All,

Best wishes for the New Year.

Dalibor and I will be at FOSDEM '17, Brussels 4 & 5 February. Let us 
know if you will be there, hopefully we can meet up !

*JDK 9 Early Access* b151 <https://jdk9.java.net/download/>  is

There have been a number of fixes to bugs reported by Open Source 
projects since the last availability email  :

      o Phases in which increasing levels of scrutiny are applied to
        incoming changes.
      o In phase 1, only P1-P3 bugs can be fixed. In phase 2 only
        showstopper bugs can be fixed.
