It's a bit of a pain to package and I don't keep track of their releases or which releases are worth the effort. Once in a while somebody will ask for a newer version of Java and I'll grab the latest version, but that doesn't happen very often.
The PPA from webupd8team I use updates Java when you update Raspbian. I've posted about it in the Java forums a few times.
Here's one of my posts: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 0#p1400092
It's basically an installer script. Probably wouldn't bee too difficult to make something similar, or you could look into using the webupd8tem PPA.
It's probably not going to be updated anymore and Buster will only have OpenJDK. Unless there's some reason to ship newer versions of Oracle Java 8 & 9?
In my experience, Oracle java is faster and more stable than OpenJDK. As far as not being updated any more, Oracle has been saying that for the last ten updates or so (the 1.8.0_201 update was very recent). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Haven't messed much with newer versions, because I mainly use Java for Minecraft, and Optifine still uses Java 8.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
