Hi all,

(In case some of you aren't following some of the other lists)

I'm happy to announce that ZGC was has now been integrated into JDK 11 [1]!

Please note that it continues to be marked as an "experimental feature" 
in JDK 11, meaning you need to use --with-jvm-features=zgc when 
configuring/building the JDK it and -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions 
-XX:+UseZGC when running it.

ZGC will however be enabled/available in all future JDK binaries 
produced by Oracle (both Oracle JDK binaries and OpenJDK/GPL binaries). 
Other vendors of JDK binaries might also enable it, but it's their choice.

The project wiki [2] continues to be the goto place for information on 
how to configure and use ZGC.
