Staging ground for the Sling 10 release notes

Java 9 support

Sling now fully supports Java 9, with the integration tests running on Java 8 and Java 9 side-by-side.

Migrated from tika-bundle to tika-parsers

In order to keep the Slingstart artifact size under control, we no longer embed the tika-bundle uber-artifact. Instead, we include tika-parsers and explicitly support parsing of PDF documents via PDFBox. Consumers that desire to parse other document types can include other dependencies as OSGi bundle as needed.

Discovering parsers that do not work can be done by starting Sling with the additional -Dorg.apache.tika.service.error.warn=true argument. See also Troubleshooting Tika .

The default Slingstart now is 33% smaller, dropping from 98MB to 66.
