Father of Java: Stop sticking to Java 8 and swift to JDK 17 LTS.
James Gosling, the father of Java, recently tweeted that developers who are still sticking to JDK 8 should deprecate it as soon as possible and choose JDK 17 LTS, because the latter brings huge improvements in all aspects.

He suggested that developers who are still using JDK 8 can consider using the new version of Corretto – which contains all the latest updates and CVE defenses.
Corretto is Amazon ‘s distribution of OpenJDK 8, which supports multiple platforms and can run on both the cloud and local computers.
The Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) runs on each Corretto release to ensure compatibility with the Java SE platform.
Corretto is a straightforward replacement for Java SE distributions without using features not found in OpenJDK (eg Java Flight Recorder) .
