Just in time for Christmas / New Year,
"Minimal Value Types" Early Access Binaries: http://jdk.java.net/valhalla/
There will be a quite period leading up to the end of the year, where
staffing levels and responsiveness will be low. But by all means, take
the binaries for a spin and raise your issues on this mailing list. New
builds addressing bug fixes and issues will be produced as required, the
first one probably around mid-January.
Keep in mind that "Minimal Value Types" (MVT) is an experiment, much of
external facing for Value Types will be changing. Case in point: "LWorld
prototype - initial brainstorming goals/prototyping steps" , shows a
direction whereby Value Types are more compatible with existing
bytecodes, rather the numerous "v-byte-codes" found under the covers of
MVT. That said, much of the internal VM representation, like layout and
JIT scalarization of value types likely remains.
Happy Holidays from Project Valhalla
