    Keeping Permalinks, uh, permanent.

    How to rule the world with permalinks. I've been working on a little project at the Botanic Gardens called the National Species List, which pulled in a heap of old data that had existing linked data links to "things". We needed an extensible way of looking after all the legacy links while managing the de-duplication and sometimes delete, data. It all needed to be "linked data" using 303 redirects etc.... you get the picture. Come see how we implemented it, and perhaps how you can use it! (hint it's open sourced).

JEP 188: Java Memory Model Update

Doug Lea has introduced this JEP which  "serves to provide information and guidance for efforts bearing on shared-memory concurrency, including those on Java SE specification updates, JVM concurrency support, JDK components, testing, and tools."

The motivation for this seems to be to fix issues with the memory model brought on by changes in technology, mainly parallelism, and limitations in the current model shown up by new software and techniques. The model was last revised in JSR 133.
