Doesn’t seem like there has been much awareness about the Java8 to Java11 announcement. Will this upcoming 4.20 release still support Java8, or will customers need to have their existing groundplex nodes upgraded to Java11 by this next release, or is this just the first release where Java11 will start being the default for new groundplex installs?

More information will likely be in the next announcement.

Any idea when that will be? No way they can force folks to 11 in this 4.20 release, not enough communication/notice about it…

I’ve asked Product Management to provide the information.

It looks like per the documentation that for 4.20, “Current Groundplex installations will continue to work with Java 8 until the Snaplex is reinstalled using the new installer… Support for Java 8 will be removed in the 4.21 release.”
