This page is tracking CA builds of Azul Zulu (PSU), which are free to download and use.

Azul Zulu builds are available for Java 6 and greater. It follows the same cadence as OpenJDK:

  • a 6-month rapid-release cycle since the release of Java 10,
  • a new LTS release every 3 years (every sixth OpenJDK release) after the release of OpenJDK 11,
  • a new LTS release every 2 years (every fourth OpenJDK release) after the release of OpenJDK 17.

LTS releases are supported for at least 8 years with bug fixes and security updates. Azul also has Medium Term Support (MTS) releases that are supported for at least 1.5 years after the general availability of the next LTS release.

Extended support can be obtained with Azul Platform Core.
