SapMachine follows the same release cadence as OpenJDK, with 6-month rapid-release cycle. There use to be a new LTS release every 3 years (every sixth OpenJDK release) but, after OpenJDK 17, the LTS frequency was increased to every 2 years (every fourth OpenJDK release).

Updates are planned to be released quarterly, with performance enhancements and security updates. Urgent fixes (including security) outside the regular quarterly cycle may occur.

SapMachine is one of the many builds of OpenJDK. For recommendations on which JDK build to use, check out whichjdk.com.
