All component updates uploaded to ImageJ and Fiji and Java-8 update sites (as appropriate).
Will write the news post tomorrow.

Is there something I could test? I am on Windows 10 now.
After subscribing to the 3D and Java-8 update site, and updating, Fiji does not run (immediate return after the splash screen is displayed)

@tinevez I had to disable the bundled Java 6 by deleting (or renaming) the java folder inside .\\ on Windows

After subscribing to the 3D and Java-8 update site

The two update sites are supposed to be the same (one just aliasing the other), so just enabling Java-8 would be enough.

Darn, I was really hoping there would be no startup problems. @tinevez Could you launch from the command line and tell us the error you get?
Unless... @tinevez did you avtually ensure yoy are using Java 8 before turning on the Java-8 site as @imagejan alludes to?

@ctrueden Yes I am using Java 8:
Jean-Yves@OPTOFLUIDICS /d/Users/Jean-Yves/Development/
$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_66"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_66-b18)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.66-b18, mixed mode)
@imagejan Your fix fixed my problem!
Thanks you both!
I can be used to test this release on win platforms now.

Ok so we need to push an update to the updater that stops using the embedded Java 6 java/ folder under any circumstance. And upload that launcher to the Java-8 site.
Ideally the updater would do the java 8 upgrade for you but that is not implemented.
Still subject to tweaks later, but it's a start.
