Per the JDK 18 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 a bug that shows up on the RC candidate-bug
list [5] then please see JEP 3 for guidance on how to handle it.

We’ll tag the first Release Candidate build shortly.
