I volunteer for filing a bug report against release-notes. We just have
to agree on the text (native speakers, please step forward :)):


News from the Debian Java Team

Jessie ships with 799 source packages (updated 442 [1], new +130 since
Wheezy) which will be maintained by the Java Team. Noteable changes:
 * OpenJDK 7 is the new supported default Java runtime.
 * OpenJDK 8 will be available from jessie-backports.
 * Tomcat 7 and Tomcat 8 are supported and Tomcat 6 was removed.
 * New developer tools including VisualVM, the Dynamic Code Evolution
   VM (openjdk-7-jre-dcevm), Gradle, eclipse-wtp-webtools and more.
 * Inclusion of androidsdk-tools (link:
 * Removal of JBoss.

[1] I counted all cyan (same version as in stable) and green (same
version in oldstable and stable) packages from [2] and subtracted the
number from 799 minus all new packages.
