The Z Garbage Collector

Just found an interesting read via the LinkedIn page of Bernard Traversat. He was pointing to a CFV for a new project called ZGC.<blockquote>In accordance with the OpenJDK guidelines [1], this project will provide a home for the continued development of the Z Garbage Collector, also known as ZGC. ZGC is a new garbage collector optimized for low latency and very large heaps. </blockquote>The mail available at is really interesting in explaining what they are doing.
