Support

Read Java Is Still Free (3.0.0) for some background information about Java support options. We are prepared to stand behind our release quality binaries, so each build that is identified as a release receives support via the Adoptium community. Our support means that you can raise an issue to describe a bug you have found in the build, and we will work with you and the appropriate development team to resolve it. Any fixes we identify will be delivered as part of the next Adoptium release.

As a community of open source developers, our commitment is to triage any issues raised and champion them in the appropriate source code project. Of course, if the problem arises from the way we build and test the code we can fix that directly. For higher levels of assurance you should contact commercial companies offering support.

The frequency of Adoptium releases is guided by the schedule of our dependencies.

OpenJDK provide a new feature release every six months, and a maintenance/security update based upon each active release every three months. The release dates for those from the OpenJDK project are the Tuesdays closest to the 17th of January, April, July and October. We will follow this schedule for publishing binary releases from Adoptium to ensure you get the latest, most secure builds.

In addition, every three years one feature release will be designated as a Long Term Supported (LTS) release. We will produce LTS releases for at least four years. This assurance will allow you to stay on a well-defined code stream, and give you time to migrate to the next, new, stable, LTS release when it becomes available.

Based upon this roadmap, and starting with Java 8 (currently supported releases in bold) here is the timetable for the various releases. Note that specific release dates in here are the ones from the OpenJDK source project and may not match when the Adoptium project will have binaries available - there will usually be a delay while we complete our extensive build and tests cycles.
