      The Java Vector API aims to make it easy to allow run-time handling and optimal vector instruction generation
      Ah. I thought it was talking about the vector class, which I seem to remember being deprecated years ago

          We're moving onto Java 11 in the past year or so, and that's a financial business so it's probably not quite that bad.

          The main driver is the combination of these businesses finally discovering microservices (well to be fair they knew about them, but had to create all the in-house tooling to support them properly), with new small spring boot 2 apps, running in kubernetes, with far more developer control, and java support stopping for 8.

            What do you mean no Wayland support?
            If you want to use Java for desktop applications, you would use JavaFX, which was removed from Java JDK and is its own package now, and the recent versions of JavaFX do support Wayland.

            For Swing and AWT, yeah, these GUI frameworks are part of the JDK and they are kind of legacy / deprecated and don't have and I don't think they will get Wayland support. XWayland is the best they will have.

              I've switched from 8 to 11 two or three years ago, without much issues. As it it I'm looking forward for Java 17.

                And yet, Swing and SWT are the most used by existing software I'm sure it is not hard to find examples of free and commercial projects. I'm not aware if any project use AWT right now.

                  It's not deprecated, people are working on it.

                    Don't know about everyone, but Autopsy still uses 8.
