Oracle is ending support for JDK 1.8 early next year. I tested SmartSVN with Java 11, but it doesn't work. Do you have a roadmap for Java 11 support?

Hi Satya,

Did you try SmartSVN 10 preview:

I hadn't, but it also gives the same error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Djava.ext.dirs=/home/satya/.config/smartsvn/10/jre-ext/11 is not supported. Use -classpath instead.
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks,
Satya

You are right - I've mixed it up with SmartGit - the next SmartSVN preview will come with a JRE 11 (and with SVN 1.11).

Thanks, that should be alright. Also, found out RedHat will maintain OpenJDK 8 until 2023[1]. So at least on Linux, OpenJDK 8 should still be viable.

Amazon has also announced supported binaries with pretty long lifecycles: https://aws.amazon.com/corretto/faqs/
