In this one I'm looking at how we should name query methods that might return <code>Optional</code>. </p></div> Stephen Colebourne2015-09-01T09:10:00ZJeroen Frijters: IKVM.NET 8.1 Release Candidate 0Jeroen Frijtershttp://weblog.ikvm.net/PermaLink.aspx?guid=b36dc873-097a-445d-b61a-3501eca38f5e2015-08-26T11:49:07Z2015-08-26T11:49:07Z <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><p> The first release candidate is finally available.

It’s called Infinity. Why? Because libthread_db is a pain in the ass for debuggers. GDB has to watch for inferiors loading thread libraries. It has to know that, for example, on GNU/Linux, when the inferior loads libpthread.so then GDB has to locate the corresponding libthread_db.so into itself and use […]</div> gbenson2015-08-25T00:24:49ZStephen Colebourne: Java SE 8 Optional, a pragmatic approachStephen Colebournetag:blogger.com,1999:blog-741750605858169835.post-38046791749243271612015-08-13T07:49:00Z2015-08-13T07:49:00Z <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><p> The <code>Optional</code> classs in Java 8 is a useful tool to help developers manage data.
