On February 12, 2018, the planned Java Development Kit 10 upgrade got its first release candidate. A second release candidate is due by March.
When JDK 10 will be released
JDK 10, an implementation of Java Standard Edition 10, is due for production release on March 20, 2018. Key improvements proposed include a local type inference and a “clean” interface for garbage collection.
Oracle has set a six-month release cadence for Java releases. There had been plans to name this upgrade and successors based on the year and month of the release, with the first release to be called Java 18.3. But those plans were scrapped after objections were raised.
