      Description

      The following inputs from Alex Buckley need to be addressed:
      1.
      Stepping back, Chapter 7 is exhausting to read because every section presents the 8-9-10-11-12+ changes slightly differently. A reader on JDK
      11 has to work hard to figure out that "Oh, this section doesn't apply to me because it's discussing changes that already happened in 8->9 and
      9->10." No acknowledgement is made that 8->11, 11->17, and 8->17 are the common upgrade paths -- no call-outs exist to give focused advice:
      "8->17 users: Be aware that ..."

      2.
      Improve --add-opens over --add-exports -- topics

      3.
      Improve Behavior Change in Regular Expression Matching topic

      4.
