The show must go on: JDK-18 is here!

It feels like JDK-17 release just landed not so long ago, but there is a new one already out: please welcome JDK-18! Although it is not an LTS release, there are quite a few interesting features to talk about (the preview and incubator ones are not included).

The JDK-18 comes in with a large number of the security enhancements, including further work on phasing out SecurityManager and its APIs:

And while we are enjoying the perils of JDK-18, the early access builds of JDK-19 are already available. There are not much details of what is coming just yet, but may be Project Loom would finally make its appearance in some form or another? Who knows ...

Peace to everyone!
