[OSGeo-Discuss] GeoServer 2.9.0 Released

Hi Faustin,
we are running GeoServer 2.9.0 on Java 8 exclusively, and if you want to
play with it, there is also
a demo server at http://demo.geo-solutions.it/geoserver/web/ that's running
2.9.x (the daily nightly build
of that series) on Java 8.

Do you have any logs reporting error messages?
Did you have a previous version of GeoServer working, or is it the first
time you try it?


PS: this discussion might be better suited for the geoserver-users list,
this one has many people
that might not be interested in it
