I'd like to give you a heads-up on our planned timelines
for the completion of the Java EE 8 Platform.

In view of our previously stated goals to complete
Java EE 8 in advance of JavaOne 2017, our specification
leads have been working against fairly agressive schedules.

These are the target dates we are working against for our
specifications, including the Platform. A number of
JSRs are further along, and are expected to complete well
in advance of these dates:

   Public Review - Apr/May 2017
   Proposed Final Draft - June 2017
   Final Release - July 2017
