  • SE9 Embedded will be available in a ARM build for the Raspberry Pi
  • This ARM specific build will only be available for Pi 2 and 3 (not the original Pi 1 A/B and + models, as it’s been compiled for ARM Thumb-2 instructions, and these are only supported on Pi 2 ARM CPU and above
  • AWT, Swing and JavaFX will all be supported on SE9 Embedded on the Pi
  • Interesting side note about modular Jigsaw in SE9 – apparently the module file packaging and compression is moving away from zip based Jars, to another format that’s more efficient for class lookup/retrieval
