When Oracle announced that MVC 1.0 was withdrawn from Java EE 8, they also indicated that they were investigating a possible transfer to a community member or organization for completion as a standalone JSR. True to their word, a request for a transfer ballot of JSR 371 has now been submitted to the JCP Executive Committee.

Java Champions response to The Register Article on Java SE usage
"On December the 16th, The Register, (an online publication) posted an article titled "Oracle finally targets Java non-payers – six years after plucking Sun". The article created a lot of uncertainty and concern in the Java and wider software community about what constitutes using commercial features within Oracle's Java SE vs the free usage of Oracle's Java SE as a programming language and runtime."

On Saturday, Red Hat’s Java technical lead Andrew Haley announced that OpenJDK 6 is reaching the end of the road. He intends to resign leadership of OpenJDK 6 at the end of 2016. However this does not mean the OpenJDK 6 project will end (someone else can apply to take over), but it is highly likely.

“Since I took over the lead we’ve maintained OpenJDK 6, back-porting important bug fixes and some updates, but I think the time has now come to say goodbye. We can’t maintain it for ever, and we’ve been strongly recommending people to move to a more recent release for some time.”
