The following methods are missing
@asgs https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/brows... - it's the suspend / resume set of methods.
They were never implemented (I've no idea why they were ever included in the public library tbh) so they're completely useless, but Java provided a very strict binary compatibly policy for years that meant they couldn't be touched.
That's been heavily relaxed in recent times, so they've now (finally) started the removal process.
@asgs Fully aware they've been there for decades, but you don't need to reserve method signatures for future use - that makes no sense (and it's not been done anywhere else in the core library AFAIK.)
Thread.stop() is deprecated because of the potential for leaving threads in an inconsistent state. It's used heavily, and will almost certainly never be removed.
