November 2020 Release Details

Summary

This Azul Zulu™ release is an alignment with the corresponding OpenJDK off-cycle update releases that are happening in November 2020. The primary motivation for these off-cycle OpenJDK updates is fixing a regression that introduced a crashing bug (in the C2 compiler, JDK-8250861) in the October OpenJDK update of the various projects.

The latest Azul Zulu™ builds that fix this regression are now available for download from regular locations including the Azul website. These builds contain all fixes and patches released on November 6, 2020, in coordination with OpenJDK.

The details of the released Zulu versions are specified in the following table:

*Java Update Type:

  • CPU (Critical Patch Updates) contain fixes to security vulnerabilities and critical bug fixes. Zulu CPU releases are generally based on prior-cycle PSU releases, with only security fixes applied. They provide a low-risk vehicle for the potentially urgent deployment of security fixes when issues of sufficient severity arise. CPU releases are available in SA and NV distributions.
  • PSU (Patch Set Updates) incorporates all of fixes in the corresponding CPU, as well as additional non-security bug fixes. Zulu PSU releases incorporate both security fixes and other accumulated changes that align the release contents with the associated OpenJDK project quarterly release. PSU releases are available in SA, NV, and CA distributions.

**Based on: Zulu CPU releases are based on prior-cycle PSU releases. Zulu PSU releases are based on the current-cycle CPU releases.

***Includes Support for JavaFX Version: Information is relevant for the builds that include JavaFX support.
