GraalVM Community release cadence used to be fixed, with one feature release every three months and an additional annual releases. But starting with JDK 20 in June 2023, GraalVM follows the JDK’s six-month release cadence and only supports the latest JDK version (just as Oracle OpenJDK releases do).

As part of this alignment, GraalVM adopted the JDK’s release numbering scheme based on the supported Java version. To avoid confusion with older releases, new releases are named GraalVM for JDK <Java version>, for example GraalVM for JDK 20 (and are prefixed with jdk- on this page).

A commercial offering with long term support is provided by Oracle as Oracle GraalVM.

More information is available on the GraalVM website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.
