+1. At Expedia Group we are big users of Hive and are also experiencing issues with not being able to use Hive 2.3.x on Java >8 which is starting to seriously impact some of our applications which require Java 11. We worked on HIVE-21508 in order to get it merged into the various branches and have been asking for a Hive 2.3.7 release for months with no replies to our questions on this mailing list.
Could someone from the Hive community please answer and let us know if there is the possibility of a Hive 2.3.7 release? I've seen at least two other requests for this on the list over the past few months. If not we will be forced to fork the current 2.3 branch and release our own version of Hive 2.3.7 to Maven Central (with a different group id) so that we can use it (it sounds like this would be useful to others out there too). We'd really rather not do this but I don't see any other solutions.
