Why doesn't 8u262 build being promoted to xenial? Only saw it on Groovy

Asked by Ido Diamant

We are using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS , which should still be supported.
There was a release of new Open JDK 8 on July 14th, and I saw it was released on Groovy branch.

Can you please make sure to have it on Xenial too, because we are using Xenial on production and need the updated version of the OpenJDK which resolves some bugs we were waiting for.

There seems to be a regression in 8u262, with a new 8u265 version for groovy currently being built.

My assumption is that as soon as the 8u265 package has proven to work well for groovy, a similar package will also be published for the other Ubuntu releases.

Thank you very much for your answer, and help.
I have noticed it this morning, and already have upgraded to this version on our staging environment for testing.
