  • OpenJDK vs. OpenJFX Release Cycles

    Confused about the release cycles of OpenJDK and OpenJFX and the relationship between them? Read on to have all your questions answered.

    At this moment, there are no planned features or changes in OpenJFX which require new JDK features (text blocks, records, etc), so the next releases of OpenJFX will most probably still be compatible with JDK 11.
