Java versioning changes and the future of the compatibility

I have a question regarding this issue. Oracle decided to start issuing rolling releases every 6 months to java virtual machine. Current tools work with Java 1.8 (A.K.A. Java 8.0) however I am wondering what will happen to the compatibility in the long run. BTW Java 10 is released yesterday. OpenJDK is also adopting the same strategy as they are using the same codebase for their releases. Some systems may update inadvertently which may kill the compatibility.
