* Notes on some issues:
   JDK-8285445 cannot open file "NUL:"
   Enable Windows Alternate Data Streams by default

   The Windows implementation of has been changed so that strict validity checks are not 
performed by default on file paths.
   This includes allowing colons (‘:’) in the path other than only immediately after a single drive 
   It also allows paths that represent NTFS Alternate Data Streams (ADS), such as “filename:streamname”.
   This restores the default behavior of to what it was prior to the April 2022 CPU in which
   strict validity checks were not performed by default on file paths on Windows.
   To re-enable strict path checking in, the system property should 
be set to false (case ignored).
   This might be preferable, for example, if Windows special device paths such as NUL: are not used.

   JDK-8283350 (tz) Update Timezone Data to 2022a
     * Palestine will spring forward on 2022-03-27, not -03-26.
     * zdump -v now outputs better failure indications.
     * Bug fixes for code that reads corrupted TZif data.

   JDK-8277608: Address IP Addressing
   Update to Detect Ambiguous IPv4 Address Literals

   An update in class requires now to accept IPv4 address literals in decimal 
quad notation only.
   On invalid literals, there will be thrown.
   To disable this restriction, set the new "" system property 
to "true".

Thank you,
