  • Eclipse OpenJ9: The OpenJ9 release notes summarize any notable changes and limitations in each release.
  • OpenJDK class libraries: OpenJDK release information is summarized at the website.

IBM Semeru Runtimes is available in two editions with different licenses:

  • IBM Semeru Runtime Certified Edition has an IBM license and is a Java Platform, Standard Edition compatible implementation.
  • IBM Semeru Runtime™ Open Edition has an open source license (GPLv2+Classpath extension).
