Zlib update to v1.2.12 blocks all Java projects from compiling

The last update of zlib package to v1.2.12 breaks all Java projects (web and desktop) with any OpenJDK release and it’s impossible to continue working on them, the only solution is to downgrade zlib to 1.2.11.

Bugreport states, that it’s not a general issue.
Keep in mind though, 1.2.12 was a security release/fix:

At least many maven projects with some dependencies are totally broken with this update.

v1.2.12-2 seems to fix the problem, is there anyway to install it from Testing branch without breaking stable one ?

You can try directly downloading the testing package and install that one, but it will put your system in a partial update situation which is entirely unsupported.
