Happy winter/summer solstice and any associated festivals and holidays you may or may not celebrate! This month's annotated contains a mix of news and talks from various autumn conferences and some light reading to tide you over until the new year.

Java News

A lot of the news in this section came from Devoxx, Belgium, which seems to be the place to announce things after Oracle Code One, or re-iterate messages from that conference. All the talks from Devoxx were streamed and recorded, see the Tweet below for more details on just some of the presentations.

Java Tutorials and Tips

This month's tips and tutorials are a mix of classic Java, up-and-coming-not-released-yet Java, and new-ish stuff you should probably be using soon. For daily tips during December (up until Christmas), see the annual Java Advent Calendar.
