The 100.4 release was the last release supporting Java 8.

As of Java 11, the JavaFX SDK is no longer bundled with the JDK. You must configure JavaFX separately. The Runtime depends on the following JavaFX modules:

  • javafx.controls
  • javafx.web
  • javafx.fxml

See Get the SDK for options on configuring your development environment.

Windows platforms will require Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017.

Linux installations must not have modified operating system binaries such as kernel or glibc.
