Compatibility with Oracle Database driver on supported version of Java

I see that currently the Oracle JDBC driver for Java 7 is supported, but Oracle JDBC driver for Java 8 (ojdbc8), which is years old, and the Oracle JDBC driver for Oracle Database 18c (ojdbc18.3), which is new, is not currently supported. As Java 7 is no longer supported by Oracle, even though New Relic is compatible with ojdbc7 and Java 7 nobody should be using this if they have a choice. Therefore as none of the Oracle JDBC drivers are actually compatible in the current Java Agent release on any support version of Java, could the recently Oracle drivers please be investigated for compatibility?
