jdk8 is a long term release, that is going to be updated in this project
at least until October 2020.

This release contains changes from April 2018 CPU (

This release includes x86 MSI installer, that has the same features as
x86_64 installer, and should work on x86 versions of Windows.

Like 8u161, this release includes a full version of OpenJFX. It is
available as an "overlay" ZIP bundle and also included into MSI
installers as an optional component.

Source bundle with the contents of ojdkbuild forest is no longer
included in downloads. It can be re-created checking out the release tag
with required submodules.

I used the binaries from CentOS (6, not 7 - for better compatibility
with older distros) for previous releases, but last time I checked this
morning, 8u171 is not yet landed into CentOS 6.9. I'll publish Linux
8u171 ZIP bundle once it appears in CentOS 6.

Generally I don't want to do Linux builds myself, because this
contradict with the idea of ojdkbuild binaries to be "as compatible with
existing Linux DEB/RPM builds as possible".
