Java 11 release candidate now available - time to try it out

The Java language development team has just released a release candidate build for Java 11, last week.

Java 11 release brings in good number of new features as noted at Personally, the TLS 1.3 and the HTTP client API are of special interest to me. Given the nature of changes in this version, it's important to try out this release candidate to make sure that these changes don't cause regressions or introduce change in semantics or features that your application or framework relies on. So this is a good time to try out this build and provide your feedback to the team.

The release can be downloaded from Any issues, feedback and suggestions can be provided by following the process noted in the "Feedback" section on that downloads page.
