  • Next release update

Next release updates

M1 for Eclipse SDK will be done this week and the rest of the train will follow. Lakshmi is in charge of the N&N page and Sopot continue to be the coordinative for the release page and in charge of being the link with the Panning Council.

JDK support

How Java 12 will be provided? It will be provided as the previous release on the Marketplace. It is too short between the official Java 12 release and the Release Train to do the change. The platform remains on Java 8 and 11 which are the LTS versions. The Java 12 will be integrated in the Release Train for the June release. It will be the same for Java 13. If Java releases continue to be on time, we will discuss whether to adapt our release plan to fit the Java releases in order to integrate them.
