Month: November 2020

OffHeap 55. JDKs are rolling out! Microprofile 4.0, OSGI moving to Eclipse, Encryption backdoors and API Court shenanigans

So JDK 16 is rolling out, and keeping with the new six month cadence, we are getting new toys at least twice a year! We also have Microprofile 4 being released.

In addition, we see the Eclipse Foundation getting bigger and bigger as it welcomes the OSGi alliance (how big will it become?)

Lastly we talk about backdoor encryption requests, and the Case that will never die… Google V Oracle API Copyrights. Covering it all in our brand new OffHeap Episode!

We thank DataDogHQ for sponsoring this podcast episode
