  1. IDP-1209
  2. Support desk – feedback?





Won't be able to make this meeting (travelling, short vacation, back on Monday).

Phase 1 of  JPAR-96 - Getting issue details... STATUS  is mostly done, and consequent Jenkins changes seem to be fine as well. I think making some kind of announcement next week makes sense; I will circulate a draft.

Phase 2 will involve actually implementing new dependencies in the v8 parent and branching java-support and spring-extensions for v8. I'll look at that towards the end of next week. After that I need to review the code in those projects and in the MDA for Java 8 changes (I'm not going to think actively about Java 9 until I can get a RTM version of it on my development machines).
