Project Jigsaw is deferred to Java 9

Project Jigsaw, the modularity proposal in Java 8, has been deferred to Java 9 to prevent the Java 8 release from being delayed. It reminds of Project Lambda previously being deferred to Java 8 so that Java 7 wouldn’t be delayed 🙂 Although this may appear as a recurring trend I think it is a good thing to strip releases of features that cannot be achieved within the allotted time so that major releases are not delayed. After all this is the real world and I’m sure we’d all not wait any longer than necessary for lambdas in Java 8!
