Everybody seems to be very excited about lambdas. What other JAVA 8 features are looked at inside the book?

Thank you Romans for the question.

The other primary Java 8 coverage from Java 8 is the new Date and Time API which is in chapter 18.

In my blog post here, I detail the various minor updates to the book for Java 8 from Java 7:

This blog post listing right now is a little obtuse. Later tonight, I will try to make the references more specific.

Thanks again for the question,
-- Robert
