Hi Jon,

Yes, we plan to support Java8 and we currently have an ongoing master thesis project working on this. It is a substantial effort, and will involve some refactoring of the type system to support more inferencing. It is difficult to say when it could be finished, but we can already compile simple lambdas, and we have good hope of having something useful at the end of this spring, although perhaps not all corners covered.

Perhaps Jesper Öqvist already replied directly. He is currently the main implementor of JastAddJ.
