Zulu 10.2, 9.0.7, 8.30, 8.29, 7.23, and 6.20 Release

Released 2018 April

Zulu 10.2, 9.0.7, 8.30, 8.29, 7.23, and 6.20 release provides accumulated fixes reflecting April 2018 OpenJDK changes and additional fixes. New Java levels are updated on all platforms.

This Zulu release establishes support for Solaris 10 for Zulu 8 and Zulu 7 on x86 64-bit and SPARC v9.

This release of Zulu contains IANA time zone data version 2018c. It is recommended to use ZIUpdater to upgrade your time zone data to 2018d.

All Zulu8 and Zulu9 deb installers support the update-java-alternatives command since 9.0.4, 8.27 release.

Zulu 9.0.7 and 10.2 SA distribution packages do not include some optional OpenJDK features: the Graal compiler, the Hotspot Serviceability Agent, the AOT, and JVMCI modules. Please note that these features are not part of either Java SE 9 or Java SE 10. They are additional items included in some specific packaging distributions, and mostly provide early access to experimental functionality.
