The releases with new functionalities and non-security fixes also called Limited Update Releases will be numbered in multiples of 20. The Critical Patch Updates (CPUs) will be calculated by adding multiples of five to the prior Limited Update and when needed adding one to keep the resulting number odd.
As an example: The next Limited Update for JDK 7 will be numbered 7u40, and the next 3 CPUs after that will be numbered 7u45, 7u51, and 7u55. The next release will be a Limited Update 7u60, followed by CPUs 7u65, 7u71, and 7u75.
