OS X Yosemite and Java 8 incompatible with Liquid Notes at the moment

Today's keynote by Apple was a lot of buzzwords flying around the room on the new iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch, but not a single statement has been made about the release date of OS X Yosemite - the operating system for your Mac.
