  • OpenJDK 11 (LTS)

    Focused more on removal than addition—we bid farewell to all of the APIs under the java.se.ee aggregator module (CORBA, JAX-B and JAX-WS) and the Oracle JDK lost the browser plugin (surely, the end of applets), Java Web Start and JavaFX.

  • OpenJDK 10

    Brought local variable type inference, with "var" introduced to the Java language, in the first release under the new six-month release cadence.

    Mar 20, 2018
  • OpenJDK 9

    Introduced Project Jigsaw, the Java Platform Module System. A contentious development which involved delays to the release of OpenJDK 9 after the JCP took the unprecedented step of voting against the public review of JSR 376., leading to changes to the encapsulation of internal APIs and a reconsideration ballot.

    Sep 21, 2017

    Contained probably the biggest changes to Java since its introduction in the form of Lambda expressions and the Streams API, which add functional-style programming. This has proved to be a hugely popular feature and got many developers excited about using Java again.
