Shenandoah GC in Fedora 24

About a month ago, Fedora 24 has been released. This is an important milestone for Christine and myself, because it includes Shenandoah in its Java VM by default. We consider this our first official release!

If you want to try it out, it’s very simple: pass -XX:+UseShenandoahGC at the cmd line, and your favorite application runs with Shenandoah!

Please report back any issues that you find to the shenandoah-dev mailing list.

    Great work!!! Not sure developers have enough awareness about Shenandoah GC. It would be nice if you/RedHat can do more in terms of publicity. Considering G1 wld become the default GC in JDK, pushing Shenandoah as a viable alternative wld be nice.
