Eclipse Temurin® 2021.07.07 Release Review

End Date of the Review Period

Reviews run for a minimum of one week. The outcome of the review is decided on this date. This is the last day to make comments or ask questions about this review.




This release comprises a coincidental publish of the first Eclipse Temurin binaries.

The binaries will be based upon OpenJDK 8u code level tagged as "jdk8u292-ga". That is the April 21, 2021 GA code level.

Supported platforms will be MacOS 64-bit Intel, Windows 64-bit Intel, and Linux 64-bit Intel.

API Certification

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

Architectural Issues

The Temurin code has been updated and refreshed changed to produce binaries from the Eclipse Foundation. While the code and delivery process has been successful in the project before moving to the Foundation, it will be the first time a release has been done since the code was updated to reflect the Temurin project. We will be in a position to check that the results of this release behave the same way as the binaries produced at AdoptOpenJDK.

Security Issues

No known unresolved security issues were identified.

Non-Code Aspects

The Adoptium website is still in a basic form, but has the essentials in place for a successful delivery of these binaries.

As an initial release of the project, with functionality already available from AdoptOpenJDK, we do not expect a significant user, marketing and promotion impact from this work. The next release later in July will be more significant.

Conforms To UI/UX Guidelines
Not verified
Usability Details

The binaries will have full usability criteria met, including all the usual Java SE capabilities, plus administrator tools to install and track the binaries in their environment.

End of Life

Compliant to the Java SE 8 specification.


This release is work of a diverse community of people working well together at Adoptium and Temurin.

The project has restructed into a Working Group and technical projects with functional PMCs. The community primarily interact through Slack chat conversations and Github issues/documents.

There are a number of engagements with student and inclusive programs, including Outreachy.
