As of this date (Sep 18 2019), there is a curious issue on the CF downloads page, in its section on JVM downloads (, where it curiously lists the designation "LTS" (long-term support, by Oracle) on only 3 of the 4 Java 11 updates (11.0.1, 2, and 3, but not 4) and on none of the Java 8's (currently showing updates 212 and 221). 

But Java 8 and 11 are indeed LTS versions (9 and 10 were note, and 12 will not be). So either ALL the updates for 8 and 11 should show "LTS" or none should.



I agree that LTS annotations for LTS releases (Java 8 and 11) need to be consistent, either showing LTS for all updates or none of them. I don't follow Java updates closely and find the explicit LTS designations helpful. However, LTS on all version 11 updates except 11.0.4 looked incorrect. If I had to make a safe choice I would have picked 11.0.3 as the latest LTS version when 11.0.4 is the correct choice at this time.
