JDK 10, an implementation of Java Standard Edition 10, was released on March 20, 2018. Key improvements include local variable types as well as enhancements for garbage collection and compilation.

JDK 10 is scheduled to be just a short-term release, and public updates for JDK 10 are slated to end in six months. The upcoming JDK 11, due in September, will be a long-term support (LTS) version of Java. LTS releases are due every three years.

Oracle has set a six-month release cadence for Java releases. There had been plans to name this upgrade and successors based on the year and month of the release, with the first release to be called Java 18.3. But those plans were scrapped after objections were raised.
