* Azul provides three types of distribution packages for each Java version:

  • SA distributions are tested, certified, and commercially supported Azul Zulu builds of OpenJDK. Azul ensures that the software that uses the Accessible APIs of the product does not have to include specific licenses and that such use does not contaminate the code or intellectual property of such software with any license requirements.

  • CA are Azul Zulu builds of OpenJDK that are free to download and use.

** Update type:

  • PSU (Patch Set Updates) incorporates all fixes in the corresponding CPU, as well as additional non-security bug fixes. Azul Zulu PSU releases incorporate both security fixes and other changes that align the release contents with the associated OpenJDK project quarterly release. PSU releases are available in SA, NV, and CA distributions.

This release does not include Azul Zulu 8 on Arm32, MIPS, PPC, or QNX platforms, as the original problem has a very limited impact on the embedded use cases. All the configurations in the October quarterly update release will include the fix. Please email us at [email protected] if you need a fix for these platforms sooner.
