As usually, Daryl, i need release tagged, installers and checksums. Thanks.
Almost forgot. If possible, we need this solved (Java 8 bundling) or move it to the next version [SPARK-1615] Update bundled JRE with the latest version - Jive Software Open Source
wroot, do you want Spark to be built with Java 8 as well?
I’m building it with java8 at home in eclipse since java8 release and it seems to work fine. So, yes, we should switch from outdated java7 completely and build Spark with java8.
Amazon S3 is synced and the website will update shortly.
