OffHeap 82. FINALLY JAVA 21 is HERE

Old enough to drink Java 21 is officially released! This is the one we have all been waiting for! With Project Loom, structured concurrency and being the Long Term Support release, this is the beginning of another incredible era for Java and Java development!

So we dive into it and start charting out WHERE does Java fit as we embark in the incredible AI and LLM world (yeah, it’s not a fad… large language models are eating the world and we should get onboard quickly w/it!).

Take a listen, and explore with your most favorite (and usual suspects) the new world of the Java language!
