Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

I've now been offered Java 8 Update 221 on Windows XP.
Still no sign of Java 8 Update 222.
:dubbio:

Have you checked the downloads with an Oracle Account?

I confirm your finding. And I was logged-in with my Oracle Account, of course...
Either they'll still release 222 sometime along this week or there'll be no 222.
I have, however, not read anywhere they'd be dropping such builds as a rule henceforward.

for /r %f in (*.pack) do jre\bin\unpack200.exe "%~f" "%~dpnf.jar" && del "%~f"

 

It's something wrong with letter "f" in this line. Could you fix it, please? As "f" is a modifier, you should better use another uppercase letter for parameter, like %K.

Edit: Well, this "f" was misleading. I just forgot to change % into %% in a script. It should be something like below:

for /r %%K in (*.pack) do jre\bin\unpack200.exe "%%~K" "%%~dpnK.jar" && del "%%~K"

Sorry for troubles…

No, the installer requires Win 7. You have to download the .zip and install manually.

Ah thanks, just thought I'd ask!
So, no different from the Oracle installer then.
I don't think I'll bother with the 222 version, I suspect there's no real advantage over 221 for normal use.

Just to clarify

Oracle is currently doing out-of-bound 2 years extension for Java 8 updates, according to https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/java-se-support-roadmap.html java 8 extended support is up to 2025, long after Dec 2020. The fixes and patches always went upstream (to openjdk, e.g. if you use linux you can get latest patched RPM) however nobody give a damn about building Windows binary especially 32-bit binary.

For example you wont find the last Java 6 updates for Windows from Oracle/Sun but you could get it from IBM https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ibm10739565 which match the roadmap date above "ended in 2018", the case I hope will be the same for adoptopenjdk to support win32 till 2025 not just 2020, IMHO they are just "arm" of IBM to promote OpenJ9 engine.

@Usher

My links contain obviously different distributions with SHA-1 signatures which can be verified on Windows XP (Your links with SHA-2 signatures which can be verified on Windows 7+). :hello:
