This is possibly off topic. Does anyone on this list know how Java.com<http://Java.com> and the JRE update program will treat the 6 month development cycle planned for Java 10+?
Currently neither of these tools is pushing Java 9 to end users yet, and Java 10 will be here soon! I bring this up because, historically, I couldn’t release code for any version of Java that wasn’t “public”. So for example I couldn’t release code, or even seriously write code, for Java 8 until long after it had been officially released. I have to believe that many other corporate developers have a similar restriction. While we are on the subject, is there a way to make the Java updater just update automatically like my web browser? I maintain 5 computers (some of the virtual) and I am constantly updating the JRE. It is just getting kind of annoying. One of the product managers here complained that he didn’t like having to do it every 3 months on just ONE computer. Maybe autoupdates would be bad for some corporate environments, but it would be good for me personally.
