You may have heard the Oracle Java 8 (or Java SE) release is on its way, and that it will be coming to the desktop in 2019.
There is, of course, a lot to look forward to, from the new Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and the JVM, to Java 6 and Java 7.
Oracle is also working on a new operating system, Java Virtual Machine (JVM) 8, which will be released sometime in 2019 or 2020.
And what does this mean for Java users?
Here’s a rundown of what’s new, as well as the features that have been added in Java 8 and what the outlook is for Java for the next decade.
What Java 8 is for:If you are interested in getting Java 8, the good news is you can install it without having to worry about needing to install the latest version of Java, Java SE, or JRE, as it comes pre-installed.
You can use the pre-release versions of Java 8 to upgrade your existing Java installation to the latest, or you can try the prerelease versions if you’re still on a pre-8.1 version.
Java 8 will include several features that will make your Java experience even better.
The most obvious is the new JVM 8, a major overhaul of the Java virtual machine, which was previously used by Java SE to build and run its applications.
JVM is a big deal for Java, because it has been used by most of the world’s major software companies.
In a nutshell, it is a huge leap forward for Java because it will allow applications to run in a much more reliable manner.
That means that applications can run more quickly and more reliably.
For example, applications that are running in Java will now be able to respond to user input without losing their previous behavior.
This allows for much faster development, because applications can build up and run in parallel without having a huge amount of memory.
Java is also making some changes to how applications run, so that they don’t just run in the foreground, and do so much faster.
This is particularly useful for desktop applications, because Java apps can run much faster on desktops and laptops than on phones and tablets.
So, if you need to build an application that uses Java, the best thing to do is run it on a laptop, not a desktop.
You can use Java 8 with Windows and Mac OS X, too.
For those who have Java on Windows, there is the option to install Java on both of those operating systems, and then run it with a single click of a mouse button.
That works for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows systems, so it’s also possible to install it on both 32 and 64 bit Mac OS, too, if your Mac is 64-bits.
If you’re on Linux, Java 8 can be installed on both Linux and Windows.

In addition to JVM updates, the JDK will also be receiving a major revamp, with the goal of making it easier to write new software.
This will require a lot of work, but Oracle hopes that the changes will improve the performance of existing software.
The new JDK has been designed to support all the new features that Java 8 brings, so you can be sure it will deliver some significant improvements in the near future.
