The following new features and notable changes since version 0.25.0 are included in this release:

Features and changes

Binaries and supported environments

Eclipse OpenJ9™ release 0.26.0 supports OpenJDK 8, 11, and 16.

For OpenJDK 8 and 11 builds that contain OpenJ9, see Version 0.25.0 for additional changes that have now been fully tested for these versions.

To learn more about support for OpenJ9 releases, including OpenJDK levels and platform support, see Supported environments.

Dump extractor tool deprecated

The dump extractor tool, jextract, is deprecated in this release and replaced with the jpackcore tool. This tool uses the same syntax and parameters as jextract to collect diagnostic files for analysis. The change is necessary because the reference implementation will be introducing a tool in a future release that is also called jextract.

For more information, see Dump extractor.
