Oracle Boosts Software Development Productivity with New Java Release
The first Long Term Support (LTS) update under Oracle's six-month release schedule announced last year, JDK 11 is the result of extensive collaboration between Oracle engineers and members of the worldwide Java developer community via the OpenJDK Community and the JCP. Since the release of Java SE 8, the community has collaborated on more than 100 new enhancements that were added through JDK 9, 10, and 11. "TLS 1.3 was recently approved and it's fantastic news that Java SE 11 will support it right away," said Jim Manico, co-author of Iron Clad Java and founder of Manicode Security. "The new Java release cycle for Java SE means that important security protocols and other standards such as TLS 1.3 can be released and adopted rapidly, giving application developers more tools to write secure software with the world's most popular language - Java!" "Thanks to continuous improvements by Oracle and the Java Community, the JVM remains the best platform for building applications," said Rafael Winterhalter, from Scienta Norway and creator of the popular Byte Buddy code generation and manipulation library for Java.
