The naming method of JDK

652398 Member Posts: 291 Bronze Badge

As far as I know, Oracle changed the naming method of Java from JDK 5.0. The version number of Limited Update is multiple of 20, such as JDK 8u20. The version number of CPU is the latest version of Limited Update plus odd number after multiple of 5, such as 8u5 and 8u11.

This kind of naming method is a little bit confused and not easy-understanding. Why does it have this meaning method? Whether it has some underlying meaning or effect?

Thanks a lot.
