On Monday, Oracle took the wraps off a preview version of Java Development Kit (JDK) 8, which is due for a general availability release next year. "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," announced Oracle's Mark Reinhold.

One of the key new features in JDK8 is Project Lambda, which "adds lambda expressions, default methods, and method refer­ences to the Java programming language and extends the libraries to support parallelizable operations upon streamed data." The release also includes a new date and time API, compact profiles, and the Nashorn JavaScript engine.
