The Enterprise-only 2022 July Payara Platform release is here!

Payara Platform Enterprise 5.41.0 brings 2 bug fixes, 2 component upgrades, and 2 improvements.

This month, this includes improving the functionality of the Upgrade Tool, which is available to Payara Enterprise customers only. Also only for Enterprise users is Azul's supported OpenJDK build for enterprises, Azul Platform Core. In this release, we've updated our Docker images to support new versions of Azul Platform Core.
