Celebrating 20 Million Downloads: A Milestone for Adoptium!

Tuesday, March 19, 2024 - 12:51 by Carmen Delgado

As Adoptium Community Manager at the Eclipse Foundation, I am beyond thrilled to share some incredible news with all of you: in the month of February, Eclipse Temurin soared past a monumental milestone, achieving over 20 million monthly downloads! This achievement was made possible because of the support and dedication of each and every member of our thriving community.

A Milestone Worth Celebrating

Reaching 20 million monthly downloads is no small feat. It represents not only the widespread adoption of Adoptium's technology but also the trust and confidence that the community has placed in us.  

Part of this success, which has resulted in more than 339 million downloads in total, is based on the hard work done by the team to guarantee quality, scalability, performance, and a secure software supply chain. Having our vendor-neutral and enterprise-ready Java runtime Eclipse Temurin as part of some automated services such as GitHub actions, Jenkins, and Atlassian has helped to spread the technologies to more companies and adopters. If you or your company use those services, we are sure you are part of this trend. 

With this milestone achievement, I want to invite the community of contributors and committers to celebrate. It has been a long ride to get here, and we are now facing some new release work and daily activities that do not allow us to enjoy the moment fully.

Introducing the Adoptium SWAG Store

We're excited to unveil the brand new Adoptium SWAG Store to commemorate this momentous occasion and further celebrate our incredible community! Our store offers something for everyone, featuring a list of products based on the common community request, including Adoptium and Temurin swag items such as t-shirts, hoodies, and more. Also, for Eclipse Temurin’s fans, we are working on a limited edition t-shirt with the 20+ million downloads/month logo that will be coming soon.
