With the new late binding of features to a release, we no longer have a Java road-map that calls out what features will come out in the next releases. We do have many interesting projects in OpenJDK that Oracle and others in the community are working on “for some future release”. Come get a high-level overview of the most-interesting and most-innovative projects that might deliver features to a version in the near future. We will also discuss how some new practices try to balance the need for evolving the platform with trying to keep older code running on newer versions.
