Starting with JDK 17 new Java SE release cadence was introduced by Oracle. Long Term Support (LTS) releases are now released every two years instead of three, with "feature" releases scheduled every six months. And Bellsoft still provides regular updates for Liberica JDK 1.6 & Liberica JDK 1.7 for Support Customers.
The Liberica JDK release cycle is aligned with Oracle Java SE and OpenJDK releases. BellSoft provides bug fixes, enhancements, and quarterly and emergency security updates to its customers.

BellSoft's commercial support is designated for Long Term Support (LTS) versions.

For LTS releases, BellSoft provides at least 8 years of access to bug fixes, security updates, and other fixes as needed. For other Java feature releases, BellSoft will provide Liberica JDK binaries in parallel with Oracle Java SE and OpenJDK and keep Liberica JDK download page for 12 months.
