## [JDK-8240687](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8240687):
JDK Flight Recorder Integrated to OpenJDK 8u

OpenJDK 8u now contains the backport of JEP 328: Flight Recorder (https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/328) from later versions of OpenJDK.

JFR is a low-overhead framework to collect and provide data helpful to troubleshoot the performance of the OpenJDK runtime and of Java applications. It consists of a new API to define custom events under the jdk.jfr namespace and a JMX interface to interact with the framework. The recording can also be initiated with the application startup using the -XX:+FlightRecorder flag or via jcmd. JFR replaces the +XX:EnableTracing feature introduced in JEP 167, providing a more efficient way to retrieve the same information. For compatibility reasons, +XX:EnableTracing is still accepted, however no data will be printed.

While JFR is not built by default upstream, it is included in Fedora binaries for supported architectures (x86_64, AArch64 & PowerPC 64)

## [JDK-8205622](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8205622):
JFR Start Failure After AppCDS Archive Created with JFR StartFlightRecording

JFR will be disabled with a warning message if it is enabled during CDS dumping. The user will see the following warning message :

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: JFR will be disabled during CDS dumping

if JFR is enabled during CDS dumping such as in the following command line :

$ java -Xshare:dump -XX:StartFlightRecording=dumponexit=true

## [JDK-8244167](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8244167):
Removal of Comodo Root CA Certificate

The following expired Comodo root CA certificate was removed from the `cacerts` keystore: + alias name 'addtrustclass1ca [jdk]'

Distinguished Name: CN=AddTrust Class 1 CA Root, OU=AddTrust TTP Network, O=AddTrust AB, C=SE

## [JDK-8244166](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8244166):
Removal of DocuSign Root CA Certificate

The following expired DocuSign root CA certificate was removed from the `cacerts` keystore: + alias name 'keynectisrootca [jdk]'


## [JDK-8240191](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8240191):
Allow SunPKCS11 initialization with NSS when external FIPS modules are present in the Security Modules Database

The SunPKCS11 security provider can now be initialized with NSS when FIPS-enabled external modules are configured in the Security Modules Database (NSSDB). Prior to this change, the SunPKCS11 provider would throw a RuntimeException with the message: 'FIPS flag set for non-internal module' when such a library was configured for NSS in non-FIPS mode.

This change allows the JDK to work properly with recent NSS releases on GNU/Linux operating systems when the system-wide FIPS policy is turned on.

Further information can be found in [JDK-8238555](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8238555).
