Time to make java 11 the new default?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hey together,

I just noticed that the default Java implementation on Fedora 30 is still Java 8. Is this intended? I.e. both `dnf provides java` and `dnf provides java-headless` list only java-1.8.0-openjdk (or its subpackage).

How about this plan:
1. For Fedora 31, make also java-11-openjdk `Provides:` the relevant version-independent package aliases `java` and `java-headless` and so on. If this proposal is too late for Fedora 31, then make it for Fedora 32.
2. One release later, drop the version-independent aliases from java-1.8.0-openjdk so that java is being updated to java-11-openjdk for all users.
