I've probably missed it somewhere, but has there been any information from Oracle about what the state of the Certification paths for Java now that we have 6-monthly releases of Java with LTS releases every few years?

I dont see a Java 9 certification path, and with 10 just out, I guess we won't see anything until possibly 11 or is Oracle going to stop producing certification paths for Java now that its release cycle faster than before...

As of today there is Oracle has still yet to release any information regarding certification past Java 8.
Recently Oracle has recently stated that some of the Java exams which came out before Java 7 are going to be retired by June 1, 2018 and some Java 7 exams will be retired by the end of 2018 as noted here https://coderanch.com/t/691480/certification/Java-exam-retirements.

My personal best guess is that Oracle may announce a post Java 8 certification path by the first half of 2019. However right now that is only a guess and that is still a long time away.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
