*Notable changes in JDK 11 EA builds since last email:*

 * Build 8:
     o If you have a library that uses the Selector API heavily then
       now would be a good time to test it out. [1]
 * Build 7
     o The VM option "-XX:+AggressiveOpts" is deprecated in JDK 11 and
       will be removed in a future release.
 * Build 6:
     o JDK-8193033 : remove terminally deprecated
       sun.misc.Unsafe.defineClass. Users should use the public
       replacement `java.lang.invoke.MethodHandles.Lookup.defineClass`
       which was added in Java SE 9. [2]


*SURVEY: The HotSpot Serviceability Agent (SA) *[3]

 * If you have used, or have (support) processes that utilize the
   Serviceability Agent or related APIs, then we would definitely
   appreciate if you would complete this survey:
