Azul Systems Extends Zulu Runtime for Java to Support Mac OS X

First Commercialized, 100% Open Source Build of OpenJDK for Mac OS X

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Azul Systems® (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java™ runtime solutions, today announced the general availability of its Zulu runtime for Java, release 8.1. Azul's commercialized build of OpenJDK now supports Mac OS X, providing a 100% open source JDK for Java developers building applications on the Mac. Zulu 8.1 for Mac OS X is freely downloadable and supports both Java SE 8 and Java SE 7. Azul offers a variety of tiered commercial support options via Zulu Enterprise.

Zulu 8.1 also supports a variety of other operating systems such as Linux and Windows, and makes it even easier for developers to download and update their Java development and runtime environment:

  • New Debian (*.deb) installer packages for Ubuntu and Debian Linux families. This is in addition to Zip-based packages, and can be accessed through the standard Apt-Get command
  • Support for distribution of Zulu RPM packages via a Yum repository
  • Updated Microsoft Azure Web Platform Installer (WebPI)
  • Updates for both OpenJDK 8 and 7 including accumulated bug and security fixes included in Java 8 update 5, and Java 7 update 55

"Zulu 8.1 represents a trifecta for the open source Java community," said Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO. "Java developers can now run their favorite IDE on their preferred Windows, Linux, and Mac-based system on a freely available, 100% open source, commercialized build of OpenJDK. This gives Java developers and enterprises tremendous platform flexibility and choice, and demonstrates Azul's continued commitment to offering open source solutions to the broad Java community."

"While the popularity of Macs has been gradually increasing over the past decade, their rise within the developer population has been far more dramatic and immediate," said Stephen O'Grady, Principal Analyst at RedMonk. "Between the aesthetics, the Unix core and the fact that it 'Just Works,' OS X has been the platform of choice at conferences like OSCON for years now."

Zulu 8.1 Availability

Zulu 8.1 is available for immediate download from www.azulsystems.com/products/zulu/downloads. Zulu developers and users are also encouraged to participate in the Zulu Community, located at https://support.azulsystems.com/hc/en-us.
