Java 19 Released

Oracle has announced the general availability of Java 19, an incremental release that will be supported for six months, reports Sean Michael Kerner. 

The latest Java Development Kit (JDK) provides updates with seven JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEPs), Kerner explains, which mainly advance three projects: 

  • Project Amber, which is about evolution of the Java language itself and syntax
  • Project Loom, which is about scalability
  • Project Panama, which is about interoperability with other languages

Java 20, another incremental release, is expected in March 2023, and Java 21, a long-term support release, is scheduled for September 2023 and will be supported for five years.
