Binaries for Eclipse Temurin are available for macOS, Microsoft Windows, and on 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.
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 included in the latest OpenJDK 17 release of Eclipse Temurin, see OpenJDK 17.0.6 Released.
