Weekly round-up: Angular 8.0.0 beta.13, Red Hat taking over OpenJDK 8 and 11 & more
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we saw a big announcement coming over from Red Hat who is taking over the leadership from Oracle for OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11. Let’s have a look.
A new era for OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11
Red Hat announced the transition of OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 over from Oracle.
While this news came as a natural course of events for some, considering the fact that Red Hat has already been the maintainer of OpenJDK 6 since 2013 and OpenJDK 7 since 2015, it was a real shock and disappointment to others who have been raising concerns about the future of Java. Here, you can find an overview of the announcement as well as the community discussion so far.
Linkerd 2.3 ramps up security
Linkerd increases its security with the latest stable release, 2.3. Now it turns on authenticated, confidential communication between meshed services on by default. Besides buffing up its security, Linkerd 2.3 also adds a new Community page for news and updates and improvements to the web dashboard.

On the road to Angular v8
The beta releases are coming faster and faster – does this indicate a stabilization? Anyway – the release candidate phase should not be far away. Beta 13 for Angular 8 was about three bugfixes, one of which is important for developers who want to work with the current version of TypeScript.
