API Certification

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

Architectural Issues

The complications of multiple JVMs for both platforms for running Memory Analyzer, and the opportunity to acquire and analyze dumps from different JVMs running on the same machine means testing is hard to do exhaustively - adhoc testing is done on Windows and the build does test acquiring and analyzing dumps from the same Linux JVM used to test Memory Analyzer.

The collection class queries, although useful, require changes each release to match changes in the actual JVM classes.Some testing of the classes available to the build and test JVM on Jenkins is done. 

Security Issues

There are no known security vulnerabilities.

The fixes for the following two security issues, which which were recently reported and first fixed in a 1.9.2 service release, are also included in 1.10.0.
