2018-08-11 15:24:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Hey everybody... Have you seen this: https://www.java.com/en/download/release_notice.jsp ?

2018-08-11 15:24:03 GMT <alfbot> Title:Java Future Release Notices (at www.java.com)

2018-08-11 15:31:15 GMT <AxelFaust> @MorganP: Yes, old news AFAIK. Already announce that way when Java 9 shipped and they changed their release cadence

2018-08-11 15:32:32 GMT <AxelFaust> So since it is very unlikely that Alfresco will manage to update all their dependencies to properly work with Java 9 (without disabling new module system / security mechanisms), we'll likely have to run with deprecated Java veresions for a while

2018-08-11 15:32:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> it was published on April 17th I believe

2018-08-11 15:34:17 GMT <AxelFaust> It was listed on the Java Support Roadmap last year... http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/eol-135779.html (though this is already an updated version for Java 10, trying to find a cached version)

2018-08-11 15:36:17 GMT <AxelFaust> So far I could only find a jaxcenter article on this from January (close to last year): https://jaxenter.com/end-life-comes-early-jdk-8-140824.html

2018-08-11 15:36:19 GMT <alfbot> Title:End of life comes early for JDK 8 - JAXenter (at jaxenter.com)

2018-08-11 15:38:59 GMT <AxelFaust> Looks like they even prolonged the period of public updates. In the graph from jaxcenter it looks like the end would have come already sometime this year, not in early 2019

2018-08-11 15:40:42 GMT <AxelFaust> Yes, originally it was planned to cut this in September: https://www.infoworld.com/article/3252771/java/oracle-extends-java-jdk-8-updates-to-2019.html

2018-08-11 15:40:44 GMT <alfbot> Title:Oracle extends Java JDK 8 updates to 2019 | InfoWorld (at www.infoworld.com)
