"Java is language, which turned from rapid development and innovation, to stagnation, which escalated with JDK6 being stable JDK for 6 years.
With JDK7 come an promise to speed up the development with feature-focused cycle of 2-3 years. JDK8 was in edge, and JDK9 come wrong.
Based on this experience, JDK will no longer be feature driven, and will try to release every half an year with LTS releases in 2-3 years.
This change is forcing in many interesting subjects like complete fade-in of OpenJDK (as reference implementation) with OralcleJDK. RedHat had its part in this whole process, and I will try to highlight major impacts of the new release cycle."
