English text:Confirms Delayed Schedule for Java Oracle 9
In the most recent communication, Oracle Java Platform Group's chief architect Reinhold Mark proposed that the release of the official version of Java 9 will be delayed for 6 months, in order to get more time for the completion of Jigsaw Project. After consideration, the delay was adopted, the official version of Java 9 is scheduled to be released in March 2017.
Reinhold Mark had previously talked about the conflict between function and timing, which shows that he is more inclined to a relatively fixed time point arrangement, even if this is done in order to delay the release of certain functions to the later version. However, when the function is considered in the new version of the core functions of the time, he also supports this situation can be handled in addition to. In Java 9 in this case, the core function is the project jigsaw. Therefore, since the project jigsaw in under the arrangement of the initial time to complete, and taking into account the progress in recent months the project jigsaw reasonable community adopted the delayed the release.
This decision is consistent with similar decisions taken by Java 8. When the project lambda, completion of the current java version 8 core function is obviously not in the timing of the initial, delay is also presented and accepted. By comparison, Jigsaw Project has been delayed from Java 8 to Java9. Similarly, we can speculate that if you want to give Valhalla Project complete set aside more time, then the release of Java 10 will be delayed.
