JShell, Java’s read-eval-print-loop implementation, can provide a valuable addition to your workflow and introduces patterns that make exploration of new APIs faster and easier. Although it is undoubtedly one of the more interesting new features of Java 9, there are almost 100 other JEPs covering various smaller and bigger features. This session teaches you how to effectively work with JShell, and it does so by exploring several powerful, less-known features in JDK 9.

Speaker is Miro Cupak, Senior Software Engineer, DNAstack.

The developers of the Android-x86 project, within the framework of which an independent community is developing the Android platform port for the x86 architecture, have published the second test release of the assembly based on the Android 9 platform. The assembly includes corrections and additions that improve the performance of Android on the x86 architecture. Universal Live-builds of Android-x86 9 for x86 32-bit (725 Mb) and x86_64 (920 Mb) architectures suitable for use on standard laptops and tablet PCs are prepared for download. Additionally, rpm packages for installing the Android environment in Linux distributions have been prepared.

Compared with the first test release in Android-x86 9.0-r2, synchronization with the Android 9.0.0_r52 branch, updating the Linux kernel 4.19.95, Mesa 19.3.2 and the Taskbar 5.0.1 panel were noted.z
