Java is now on a six-month release schedule, with new features being added all the time. This talk summarizes the features that have been added to Java, including modules, jshell, collection factory methods, private methods in interfaces, new annotations and more. The goal is to show not only what has been added, but why and where to use them.
Additional topics will include Local Variable Type Inference, the new HTTP client, the enhanced switch expressions, and more. If time allows, coverage of preview features like records and text blocks will be included.
