Oracle has announced the availability of Java 19 on Wednesday. This is the latest version of the world’s number one programming language and development platform. 

Java 19 (Oracle JDK 19) brings with it thousands of performance, stability and security improvements, including enhancements to the platform that will help developers improve productivity and drive business-wide innovation. 

The latest Java Development Kit (JDK) provides updates and improvements with seven JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEPs). Most of these updates are to be delivered as follow-up preview features improving on functionality introduced in earlier releases.

JDK 19 delivers language Improvements from OpenJDK project Amber (Record Patterns and Pattern Matching for Switch); library enhancements to interoperate with non-Java Code (Foreign Function and Memory API) and to leverage vector instructions (Vector API) from OpenJDK project Panama; and the first previews for Project Loom (Virtual Threads and Structured Concurrency), which will drastically reduce the effort required to write and maintain high-throughput, concurrent applications in Java.

In a statement, Georges Saab, senior vice president of development, Java Platform and Chair, OpenJDK Governing Board, Oracle said, “The powerful new enhancements in Java 19 are a testament to the monumental work across the global Java community.”
