Azul is happy to announce the availability of the March snapshot of OpenJDK 9, pre-release 11.
These binaries represent a source snapshot matching OpenJDK build 162, reflecting source up to about March 22.
This release includes first time support for Container Linux by CoreOS and first time support for Alpine Linux. Avid Zulu user @Cantara already posts an Alpine configuration on Docker using Zulu here https://hub.docker.com/r/cantara/alpine-zulu-jdk9/ so we went ahead and added formal testing for Alpine across Zulu 9 EA, 8, 7 and 6 targets in our QA test automation system.
As a reminder, formal support programs from Azul will extend to cover Zulu 9 once we reach GA. Until then, we welcome all informal Q&A here on the Zulu forum.
Please provide any feedback about this snapshot, posted at http://zulu.org/zulu-9-pre-release-downloads/
