In keeping with its new faster release cycle, Oracle has released Java Platform Standard Edition (SE) 10, just six months after releasing Java 9. "We are extremely happy to deliver Java 10 on time as announced last year," said Donald Smith, senior director of product management at Oracle. "We were able to include some new innovations that would have normally taken years, such as local-variable type inference and some experimental features such as Graal."
The release aims to improve developer productivity with features like Application Class Data Sharing (CDS) and a root certificate capability.
The next version of Java SE, Java 11, is due for release in September.
