The JDK is an open source project that you can download and build yourself! All the new things under work are available on Mercurial branches, that you can get and compile to test them before they are released. It allows you to play with them, see how they work, see what do the new syntaxes look like. In short: you can play now with a JDK from the future, that may never exist!

We will show how all this work, from the installation of a Ubuntu virtual machine to the execution of a home made JDK that will never be released.
