Availability of OpenJDK8 verion 8u302-b08

Asked by Prabhanjan Gururaj

GA of OpenJDK8 - 8u302-b08 happened on Jul 20th as per https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/jdk8u/Main

But the Ubuntu repo still has the previous 8u292 even after a month. Usually, the repo is updated the very next day as I have observed.

(a) What might be the reason?
(b) What would it be updated?

ubuntu repo: https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/amd64/openjdk-8-jdk/download

I suggest you report a bug. If the security and bug fixes in the newer version are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later

Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages can be left if there are other packages that need attendtion.

Can you help with this problem?
