      Description

      The Release Notes for JDK 8 are somewhat vague on the fact that the Rhino javascript engine has been replaced with a new one (Nashorn). Suggest that the following changes be made:

      - in the Whats New page:
      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8-whats-new-2157071.html
      be clearer as to the change, at the moment it just says "Scripting: Nashorn Javascript Engine"

      - in the JDK 8 Compatibility guide:
      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8-compatibility-guide-2156366.html
      point to the Rhino to Nashorn migration page:
