I have drafted the F21 release notes entry for this change (mainly text from the F21 Changes wiki pages). Please would you take a look at https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/docs/release-notes.git/tree/en-US/Development_Java.xml and let me know if it is OK or if anything needs to be added or changed.

Thanks, it looks good for me now.
