The newest version is Java 10, released last March 20, 2018, which follows Java 9 after only six months in line with the latest release schedule. There is still support for Java 8, but there will be no more security updates for Java 9. Companies still support Java 8 and its earlier versions on a commercial basis.
The launch of Java 10 has been quite an accomplishment for this programming language, regarding the speed at which it came after the gradual release of the latter version. Aside from this, it brings a few futuristic changes, which are poised to produce amazing improvements in it. These features are going to affect every Java developer in India and abroad, which is the reason that all of them should know about the notable features and enhancements that this new version brings.

Perhaps, the most innovative feature of Java 10 is the Local-Variable Type Inference, which concentrates on improving the developer’s experience. It will enable them to declare a local variable without having to define its type. The context will infer the type.
Time-Based Release Versioning (JEP 322)
Another all new development that accompanies the release of Java 10 is the adoption of a time-based release approach, with one to come in every six months. For some, it means additions are coming in at a rapid pace while for others, it is not as efficient because the time to adapt to a particular version is limited.
