New Development Snapshot

More progress on the OpenJDK 8 integration.

Changes:

  • Integrated Nashorn.
  • Added workaround for bug in .NET 2.0 implementation of ModuleBuilder.GetMethodToken() exposed by Nashorn.
  • Bug fix. A .NET type should always have access to its nested types.
  • Fixed javap build.
  • Bug fix. The MethodHandle code requires the volatile field accessors in Unsafe for volatile field access.
  • Bug fix. Handle more than 8 parameters in invokedynamic.
  • Bug fix. DynamicMethod's ILGenerator doesn't like unbaked array types.
  • Bug fix. MethodHandle.invoke[Exact] methods should have VarArgs flag set.
  • Added workaround for javac MethodHandle.invoke[Exact] detection bug.
  • Moved cldrdata and localedata into separate assemblies.
  • Implemented native methods for HostLocaleProviderAdapterImpl. The system property "java.locale.providers" can now be set to "HOST" to use the .NET locale implementation.
