Proposed Java 9 release date

July 27, 2017

Here are the proposed dates for the interim milestones:

2016/05/26 Feature Complete
2016/12/22 Feature Extension Complete
2017/01/05 Rampdown Start
2017/02/09 All Tests Run
2017/02/16 Zero Bug Bounce
2017/03/16 Rampdown Phase 2
2017/07/06 Final Release Candidate
2017/07/27 General Availability

The dates here are meant to leave sufficient time for broad review and testing of the significant features of the release, in particular the introduction of a module system and the modularization of the platform, while maintaining the cadence of shipping a major release about every
two years.

(The release date was originally September 22nd, 2016 but delays to Project Jigsaw have pushed the release date to 2017 and then even further.)
