Other Notes

 System Property to Handle HTML ObjectView Creation (JDK-8296832 (Not Public))

Some Swing components, such as JLabels and JButtons, which display application text, will try to interpret that text as HTML, principally to enable styled text. The HTML processing of the text for these components will no longer recognize the <object> tag which allows for subclasses of java.awt.Component to be rendered on the component. To re-enable this, applications must specify -Dswing.html.object=true.

 Added Certigna(Dhimyotis) CA Certificate (JDK-8245654)

The following root certificate has been added to the cacerts truststore:

+ Certigna (Dhimyotis)
   + certignaca
      DN: CN=Certigna, O=Dhimyotis, C=FR

 File::listRoots Changed to Return All Available Drives on Windows (JDK-8208077)

The behavior of the method on Microsoft Windows has changed in this release so that the returned array includes a File object for all available disk drives. This differs from the behavior in JDK 10 to JDK 20, where this method filtered out disk drives that were not accessible or did not have media present. This change avoids performance issues observed in the previous releases and also ensures that the method is consistent with the root directories in the iteration returned by FileSystem.getDefault().getRootDirectories().


Bug Fixes

This release also contains fixes for security vulnerabilities described in the Oracle Critical Patch Update.
