JDK 9 Released Today

The big news in Java today is, of course, the release of JDK 9 in General Availability. Mark Reinhold starts his message JDK 9: General Availability with the statement, "I'm pleased -- nay, thrilled! -- to announce that JDK 9 is now Generally Available."

The Reinhold post adds that in addition to Jigsaw, there are "many other excellent additions and improvements." He lists them with links that are reproduced here:

It will be interesting to see what people learn and share from using JDK 9 over the next several months. We've already seen numerous resources based on early releases of JDK 9, but I'd expect usage and consequential lessons learned to pick up with JDK 9 in General Availability. Recent posts that provide examples of this include Java 9, Jigsaw, JPMS, and Modules: A Personal Exploration and JDK 9: XXtra Command Line Options.
