Java 11 RC build - HTTPS handshake failure against a previously working server

While testing the recently released RC of JDK11 against the Apache Ant
project, I happened to run into an odd error. I have now been able to
reproduce this using the following, pretty trivial code:

import java.net.URL;
import java.io.InputStream;

public class Fetch {
     public static void main(final String[] args) throws Exception {
         final URL targetURL = new
URL("https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public/javax/media/jai-core/1.1.3/jai-core-1.1.3.pom");
         try (final InputStream is =
targetURL.openConnection().getInputStream()) {
             is.read();
         }
         System.out.println("Done");
     }
}

All it does is opens a (HTTPS) connection against an endpoint to read
some content. This code works fine in Java 8 and even Java 10. I'm
pretty sure this was working fine even in Java 11 early access builds,
but I don't have any such build/binary at hand to be certain.

However, using the latest (OpenJDK) RC of Java 11 (both on Mac OS and
Linux) downloaded from[1]:

openjdk version "11" 2018-09-25
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11+28)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11+28, mixed mode)

it fails with:
