Oracle has updated the Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap with a Java SE 9
End of Public Updates Notice. [0]

Oracle doesn't plan to contribute further changes to JDK 9 Updates in 
this OpenJDK Project once updates of Java SE 9 are no longer being 
posted to its public download site, in March 2018. Instead, Oracle plans 
to initiate and contribute to the development JDK 10 Updates within this 
OpenJDK Project in due course.

That makes the January 2018 CPU, 9.0.4, the last planned [1] Oracle-led 
JDK 9 Update release to be developed within this OpenJDK Project.

Users of OpenJDK JDK 9 Updates builds should consider upgrading to JDK 
10 when it becomes generally available.

As with JDK 6 and JDK 7 Updates Projects in the past, if a suitable 
party steps forward to maintain the JDK 9 Updates series further once 
the final Oracle-led JDK 9 Update release has been published, we will 
discuss how to best enable such a transition on this Project's mailing list.
