Java 8 Release Delayed Until Next Year

Thursday brought news from Oracle that the expected release of Java 8 slated for September will be delayed until sometime in Q1 2014. The delay is to give the company time to address new security concerns.

"Looking ahead, Oracle is committed to continue fixing security issues at an accelerated pace, to enhance the Java security model, and to introduce new security features. This work will require more engineer hours than we can free up by dropping features from Java 8 or otherwise reducing the scope of the release at this stage."
