Java Support Roadmap
This is a very sad announcement to me: Oracle plans to extend Java 8 support and give “Extended Support” until 2030 December (practically till 2031), see: Java Support Roadmap. I have never really understood why can’t we just leave Java 8 alone and let it enjoy its retirement. Just for the comparison: Java 11 is supported till 2026 September while Java 17 should retire in 2029 September.
Java Pub House - Episode 96. Micrometer
As you might know, I’m a Micrometer maintainer, the Java Pub House folks talked about Micrometer this month:
University duo thought it would be cool to sneak bad code into Linux as an experiment
Computer scientists at the University of Minnesota theorized they could sneak vulnerabilities into open-source software – but when they tried subverting the Linux kernel, it backfired spectacularly.

Write a Good Dockerfile in 19 ‘Easy’ Steps
and please do not write Dockerfiles anymore. :)
CodeCov Security Breach
On Thursday, April 1st, CodeCov found out that someone had gained unauthorized access to their Bash Uploader script and modified it. The actor gained access because of an error in Codecov’s Docker image creation process that allowed the actor to extract the credential required to modify the Bash Uploader script. See the announcement for the details.
