ANNOUNCE: Java 8 released

Hot off the press:

What's new:

For RPi, use the "Linux ARM v6/v7 Hard Float ABI" binary from here:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... 33151.html

I expect to see the Raspberry Pi Linux repository and Raspbian etc images to be updated with Oracle JDK 8 sometime soon.

Thanks for the information, that's nice.
And I see that your document writers also cleaned up the many Java 8 / FX documents, and the tutorial! Well done.
