Issue Description
JDK-8210038

Set 32 or 64 bit JRE requirements in a JNLP file


Web Start applications can now specify requested JREs with their arch attributes, and select the first one available that matches, even if it is not the same arch (32 bit vs 64 bit) as the currently running JRE. For example, the JNLP content below would place first preference on 64 bit JDK8, and if not available, 32 bit JDK9: ` <resources arch="x86_64"> <java version="1.8"/> </resources> <resources arch="x86"> <java version="1.9"/> </resources> ` Note that in the above example, in order to launch a 64 bit 1.8 JRE, a 64 bit 9 JRE must be installed. If only a 32 bit 9 JRE is installed, the 64 bit 1.8 JRE is unavailable.

Issue Description
JDK-8207322

GTK3 Supported on Linux


This release enables Java graphical applications, whether based on JavaFX, Swing, or Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT), to use either the GTK+ version 2 or version 3 on Linux or Solaris.

By default, the JDK on Linux or Solaris uses GTK+ 2 if available; if not, it uses GTK+ 3.

To use a specific version of GTK+, set the system property jdk.gtk.version. This system property may have a value of 2 or 3. You must set this property before your application loads GTK+, and it must not conflict with a GTK+ version that may have been loaded earlier by another toolkit.

To get more information about the GTK+ version loaded and GTK+ specific issues, set the system property jdk.gtk.verbose equal to true.

jarsigner Prints When a timestamp Will Expire


The jarsigner tool now shows more information about the lifetime of a timestamped JAR. New warning and error messages are displayed when a timestamp has expired or is expiring within one year.
