Re: GWT version with Java 8 support

There were initially two aspects to java8  support. 
1) Lambda compilation
2) SDK emulation

It was indicated that 1 but not 2, may still make GWT 2.7. Allowing for some of the benefits for reduced verbosity now, if you avoid using java8 only JDK bits. Have both 1 and 2 been pushed to GWT 3.0 now?

It's a pity that java8 support was delayed, but I believe GWT team have the reason.

Priorities vs. limited resources ;-)
Do you plan to provide 3.0-SNAPSHOTS with Java8 support or stable 2,7 + java8 support build (let's call it 2.8-SNAPSHOT)?

There are nightly builds of the master branch (currently 2.7.0-SNAPSHOT) published to
When we cut 2.7, those should become 3.0-SNAPSHOT; and as soon as Java 8 support gets merged in, you'll be able to use it.
