I’ve been waiting for the Java 8 version of JME to be released; which basically involves checking the downloads page with an unhealth regularity. Over that time however I have downloaded 3 identical versions of JME just to check it hasn’t been updated without me realising (in part this is because the file size quoted on the page doesn’t the same as on my system - probably due to the 1000kb != 1mb issue)
Would it be possible to include on the downloads page the date on which the SDK was most recently updated.
@erlend_sh Thanks for the very fast response, that was exactly what I was suggesting!
And thanks for letting me know its months not weeks so I can stop checking quite so obsessively. As this is more of a curiousity thing than a need to use java-8 I’ll wait for it to go official rather than messing with jmonkeyplatform.conf
By waiting for the official release I mean; play around till it works.
Trying to change the JME IDE to use Java 8 failed; after changing the conf file and setting the JDK version to 1.8 (aka java 8 ) all the source files got warnings of the form “Object.class: major version 52 is newer than 51, the highest version supported by this compiler” and it behaved as if it was Java 7
