Presenter: Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter Java Users Group, Austin, TX, USA January 2019
In this presentation, held at a Java Users Group Meetup in Austin, Texas, Simon Ritter looks at how Java is changing, both from a technical perspective and from the point of view of release schedules, binary distributions and availability of updates.
Major new features in JDK 9, 10 and 11 are discussed, as well as a peek at what’s in store for JDK 12. Simon also looks at some of the larger, longer-term projects to improve Java: Amber, Valhalla and Loom.
