    Oracle Java 8 is expected in summer 2013, but there are some early access builds available for download already. I've got a request to upload it to the WebUpd8 Java PPA, and I did so you can now easily install Oracle JDK 8 (includes JRE :cool: in Ubuntu / Debian and derivatives.

    Oracle Java 8 should only be used for testing purposes and/or by developers. Since this is a preview release, you'll encounter bugs!

    As a reminder, the WebUpd8 Java PPA doesn't include any Java binaries, just a script that automatically downloads and install Oracle Java. Everything is done automatically so you'll get updates through the update manager for JDK8 which includes JRE8 and the Java browser plugin.
