Good afternoon. I looked at the Draft #2 for the Java EE 8 spec, and saw
that it still looks like there is plans for a JPA 2.2 (EE.6.30 Java
Persistence API 2.2 Requirements). Back in late February it was mentioned
about a possible Maintenance Release, but since then things have been very
quiet among the JPA expert group. July is almost upon us, so I'm bringing
this discussion topic back up again if there's going to be any public
discourse over the updates (presumably to support capabilities added in
Java 8) before we run out of time.

Best regards,
