Unavailability of OpenJDK8 verion 8u302-b08

Bug #1940845 reported by Prabhanjan Gururaj
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openjdk-8 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

GA of OpenJDK8 - 8u302-b08 happened on Jul 20th as per https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/jdk8u/Main
There are a few security fixes too in this release and worth getting into the ubuntu repo on priority.

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
u302 relese page: https://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk8u-dev/2021-July/014118.html

Thanks for reporting.

I don't know if it was a coincidence or direct response, but I see that impish-proposed now has version 8u302-b08-0ubuntu2 [1]. Though it has been packaged, it hasn't yet migrated to the release archive, looks like it is currently blocked by some issues with newer glibc package [2].

Based on the package history, I reckon that once those issues are resolved and the new version is available in Ubuntu Impish (the current development release), it will also be added as updates for older Ubuntu releases.

Hello, it looks like the new version is available for Impish now but I have not seen signs for backports to other versions. This release addresses multiple CVEs so it would be great to have the packages available in supported versions of Ubuntu. Are there any updates on the availability?
