Description

I know Java changed it release scheme so I spawn new versions too fast. So I only ask for a LTS release. Openjdk11 is a LTS release the same as Openjdk8. Please consider packaging it. I found you don't care about the Java stuff much. The openjdk8 in the repo also outdated. We already have openjdk8u252b14. Please consider update it, too.

The final public version of JDK8 by Oracle is version 232 as I recall but Joyent has newer versions packaged for their pkgsrc repo. I don't know why the developers accepted to stuck with the old and not updated with security fixes version but don't update to the newer versions! It's simply about pulling the code from Joyent and build binary packages and push it to the repo! All of the major porting efforts has already done by Joyent. But it seemed the developers currently don't have time for this.

IMHO, we could just keep this OpenJDK8 version we currently have for internal use (e.g: building of OI itself), but only port OpenJDK11 from Joyent. It's more reasonable to doing so, since the Joyent's OpenJDK11 port also has fonts rendering fixed and given the fact that the developers don't have enough time.
