  • JEP 474: Generational Mode Now Standard for ZGC in Java

    JEP 474, ZGC: Generational Mode by Default, has also been targeted for JDK 23. This JEP proposes to use the Z Garbage Collector (ZGC) from non-generational to generational mode by default. The non-generational mode will be deprecated and removed in a future JDK release. This will reduce the cost of maintaining the two modes, so future development can primarily focus on Generational ZGC.

    JEP 439, Generational ZGC, has been promoted from Targeted to Completed for JDK 21.
