Submission + - Java 8 Developer Preview Released (infoq.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Oracle has released the first developer preview of Java 8 for the full range of platforms (Windows, Max OS X, Linux, Solaris). Java 8 is a major update to both language and platform with Lambda expressions, method references, default methods, a new Date and Time API, Compact Profiles, the Nashorn JavaScript Engine, and the removal of the Permanent Generation from the HotSpot virtual machine.

"This milestone is intended for broad testing by developers," Java Platform Chief Architect Mark Reinhold wrote on his blog.

"We've run all tests on all Oracle-supported platforms and haven't found any glaring issues. We've also fixed many of the bugs discovered since we reached the Feature Complete milestone back in June."

Let the bug hunt commence!
