    I think of it like a C++ but with more verbosity, automatic memory management, no header files and a ultra-simplified type system in where everything is a pointer except for int, long, float, double, short, byte and char.

    It would be interesting to see benchmarks comparing GraalVM community edition to GraalVM enterprise and to OpenJDK.

    A lot nicer but not yet as nice as kotlin. Some of the new things since 8 are "var", switch expressions, helpful nullpointerexceptions, text blocks, records, sealed classes and some pattern matching.

    Java 8 was a major step up compared to Java 6 or 7. Any more recent versions are pretty good.

    Java8 was big improvement and 17 is much better. If you combine it with Project Lombok it is quite pleasant experience.
