Java 8 is Final!!!
First class Linux support, both on the development/tools end and on the user/runtime end, as always. Many JVM (Java/Scala/Groovy/Clojure) developers I work with use Linux dev laptops and everyone uses Linux servers.
Even, for the non-Java JVM devs (Scala/Groovy/Clojure), this is a pretty beneficial release.
