Per the JDK 16 schedule [1], we are now in the Release Candidate phase.
The stabilization repository [2] is open for P1 bug fixes per the JDK
Release Process (JEP 3) [3].  All changes require approval via the
Fix-Request Process [4].

If you’re responsible for any of the bugs on the RC candidate-bug list
[5] then please see JEP 3 for guidance on how to handle them.

There are no unresolved P1 bugs in build 35, so that is our first JDK 16
Release Candidate.

Binaries available here, as usual: https://jdk.java.net/16
