JDK-8252885 is draft JEP with a proposal for addressing the issues with ThreadGroup without causing significant disruption. The proposal amounts to addressing its main issues and can be thought of as "pushing ThreadGroup aside" so that thread creation, starting, or termination does not need bookkeeping overhead. The proposal does not preclude deprecating or removing ThreadGroup in the future.
