Abstract

The release notes for Eclipse Temurin 17.0.10 provide an overview of new features in OpenJDK 17 and a list of potential known issues and possible workarounds.

Preface

Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK) is a free and open-source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). Eclipse Temurin is available in four LTS versions: OpenJDK 8u, OpenJDK 11u, OpenJDK 17u, and OpenJDK 21u.

Binary files for Eclipse Temurin are available for macOS, Microsoft Windows, and multiple Linux x86 Operating Systems including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu.

Making open source more inclusive

Red Hat is committed to replacing problematic language in our code, documentation, and web properties. We are beginning with these four terms: master, slave, blacklist, and whitelist. Because of the enormity of this endeavor, these changes will be implemented gradually over several upcoming releases. For more details, see our CTO Chris Wright’s message.

Chapter 1. Support policy for Eclipse Temurin

Red Hat will support select major versions of Eclipse Temurin in its products. For consistency, these versions remain similar to Oracle JDK versions that Oracle designates as long-term support (LTS).

A major version of Eclipse Temurin will be supported for a minimum of six years from the time that version is first introduced. For more information, see the Eclipse Temurin Life Cycle and Support Policy.

Note

RHEL 6 reached the end of life in November 2020. Because of this, Eclipse Temurin does not support RHEL 6 as a supported configuration.

Chapter 2. Eclipse Temurin features

Eclipse Temurin does not contain structural changes from the upstream distribution of OpenJDK.

For the list of changes and security fixes that the latest OpenJDK 17 release of Eclipse Temurin includes, see OpenJDK 17.0.10 Released.

New features and enhancements

Review the following release notes to understand new features and feature enhancements included with the Eclipse Temurin 17.0.10 release:

KEEPALIVE extended socket options support added on Windows

On Windows 10 version 1709 or later platforms, the java.net.ExtendedSocketOptions class now supports the TCP_KEEPIDLE and TCP_KEEPINTERVAL options.

Similarly, on Windows 10 version 1703 or later platforms, the java.net.ExtendedSocketOptions class now supports the TCP_KEEPCOUNT option.

See JDK-8308593 (JDK Bug System).

X509KeyManager.chooseClientAlias method called once for all key types

In OpenJDK 17.0.10, TLS or Datagram TLS (DTLS) now makes only one call to the X509KeyManager.chooseClientAlias method during handshakes for client authentication, regardless of how many algorithms are requested.

See JDK-8262186 (JDK Bug System).

Peak values for committed memory included in NMT reports

In OpenJDK 17.0.10, Native Memory Tracking (NMT) reports now show the peak value for all categories. The peak value is the highest value for committed memory in a given NMT category over the lifetime of the JVM process.

If the committed memory for a category is currently at its highest value, the NMT report shows an at peak value; otherwise, the NMT report shows the historic peak value.

For example, the following report output shows that compiler arena memory peaked above 6 MB but is now approximately 200KB:

Compiler (arena=196KB #4) (peak=6126KB #16)

See JDK-8317772 (JDK Bug System).

JVM warnings about unsupported THPs on Linux

On Linux platforms, if Transparent Huge Pages (THPs) are requested but not supported, the JVM now prints the following message to standard output:

UseTransparentHugePages disabled; transparent huge pages are not supported by the operating system.

See JDK-8313782 (JDK Bug System).

Increased default value of jdk.jar.maxSignatureFileSize system property

OpenJDK 17.0.8 introduced a jdk.jar.maxSignatureFileSize system property for configuring the maximum number of bytes that are allowed for the signature-related files in a Java archive (JAR) file (JDK-8300596). By default, the jdk.jar.maxSignatureFileSize property was set to 8000000 bytes (8 MB), which was too small for some JAR files, such as the Mend (formerly WhiteSource) Unified Agent JAR file.

OpenJDK 17.0.10 increases the default value of the jdk.jar.maxSignatureFileSize property to 16000000 bytes (16 MB).

See JDK-8312489 (JDK Bug System)
