Jamaica 8.2 General Release

13 Feb 2019

Version 8.2 of JamaicaVM is now publicly available. The new release adds support for important APIs of the compact3 profile. This includes the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) and parts of the Management API and Extension.

Through compiler optimization, the runtime of lambda expressions in Java code got more deterministic, which improved performance. Another contributor for better performance, specifically in profile generation, is the fact that the profiling VM is now precompiled.

Also to point out as new feature is support for Elliptic Curve Cryptography on Linux, QNX and Windows (previously only offered for Linux on x86_64 architecture) and augmented RTSJ support.
