Eclipse Foundation and the Adoptium Working Group Announce Latest Eclipse Temurin Open Source Java SE Release

Eclipse Temurin continues impressive momentum with over 380 million downloads, 50% year-over-year growth, security enhancements, and RISC-V support

BRUSSELS, Belgium, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, a leading open source foundation, in collaboration with the Adoptium Working Group, has announced the latest release of Eclipse Temurin’s Java SE runtime. This landmark release supports 54 version/platform combinations and five major OpenJDK versions, underscoring Adoptium's commitment to a diverse and comprehensive range of supported builds, spanning Linux, Mac, Windows, and various architectures, including x64, ARM, and RISC-V.

“The incredible growth of Eclipse Temurin reflects a strong demand among developers for secure, high-quality, and community-driven open source Java runtimes,” said Thabang Mashologu, vice president, Community and Outreach for the Eclipse Foundation. “The Adoptium Working Group’s efforts have been instrumental in delivering free-to-use, enterprise-ready runtime binaries and expanding the potential use cases for open source Java. Eclipse Temurin is one of the first open source Java distributions to support RISC-V, introducing new opportunities for Java in Industrial IoT and beyond.”

In conjunction with this release, the Working Group has also shared several significant Eclipse Temurin updates and developments:

  • Unprecedented Growth and Adoption: Eclipse Temurin is the fastest-growing open source Java SE runtime, currently exceeding 23 million downloads per month and more than 380 million downloads to date. A recent independent report (New Relic, State of the Java Ecosystem, April 2024) confirms Temurin momentum with 50% year-over-year growth and representing 18% of the Java market as the second most popular JDK vendor.
  • Security Enhancements: Eclipse Temurin is building the world’s most secure OpenJDK distribution and pioneering software supply chain security practices. Nominated platform builds are independently verified, and include a comprehensive software bill of materials. The Working Group recently launched a case study that highlights this commitment.
  • RISC-V Support: Eclipse Temurin now supports RISC-V microprocessors, broadening its applications to embedded technologies, IoT, machine learning, automotive software, and high-performance computing.

Eclipse Temurin, an open source Java SE distribution based on OpenJDK, is available for a wide range of platforms and Java SE versions. There are multiple commercial support options available for Temurin, ensuring Temurin adopters can receive enterprise-grade support coverage for their mission-critical Java workloads. Members of the Adoptium Working Group, including Azul Systems, IBM, Open Elements, and Red Hat, offer this support.
