Hi there,

when do you expect to roll out the Java 11 (as a default) on Android/Linux stacks? A newsletter was claiming that it would be released 14th Sep, but it is still not there…

Best regards

We are also waiting for it, it seems to be a slow rollout…

Hello everyone :wave:

A quick follow-up to the post from yesterday: the weekly update was rolled back due to technical issues identified with the new set of images, and we are working on a new update as we speak! :slight_smile:

Hey @RobertSzuba, @pixell thanks for your question,
as Roland mentioned we had to roll back the original update.

But we fixed the problem and released the update again, so from now on Java 11 is the default one on all stacks.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi @BirmacherAkos

Thanks for the update. But we still haven’t received the update on our tech stack.

Hi,

The Android/Ubuntu stack still seems to use Java 1.8 as default. Without dedicated Java 11 switch our build fails with “… The version of Java (1.8.0_292) you have used to run this analysis is deprecated …” plus I don’t see the expected change here (even though it seems to be just a comment):

Sometimes all you can do if fall on your sword and say I’m sorry! Please know that making sure this doesn’t happen again is a top priority and is being worked on even as I type. We apologize.

Unfortunately, in our effort to correct the previous problem and with the added focus on Xcode 13.0.x stack, somehow the Linux-based stacks did not get updated with the Java 11 default change. We are on it and the Ubuntu-based stacks are currently in the process of being updated with this change.
