Has anyone switched to Java 8 yet? Any issues or steps needed to accomplish what is normally a routine change?
I noticed that Eclipse Kepler requires a patch to provide Java 8 features as described here with the patch's installation described on pages linked from there. I've downloaded Java 8, built a new folder for it, but haven't modified my environment variables to point to it as the new JAVA_HOME, etc. Not sure why I'm hesitating, but it seems I should wait for it to get beyond Java SE 8uZero to get some of the bugs worked out.
If you've already done it, reassure me that there's life after switching and that it's a good life.
If you're waiting, why?
