I understand what the WindowBuilder team was trying to do with the old version check code, but would you consider removing it or updating it to handle Java 9, 10, and 11 since Oracle changed the format of the version numbers?
WindowBuilder-designed apps run fine in Java 9/10/11, but WindowBuilder itself doesn't run because of the one line of WindowBuilder's source code where you check the version for "1.x...." broke back on Java 9 when they reformatted to "9" (and 10 and 11 continue this pattern, but Oracle could break it again in a few months on Java 12).
Would you and the team consider either updating the version check or removing that if statement altogether? I have thousands of students who want to use WindowBuilder, but don't want to downgrade back to Java 8 just for this one awesome tool.
Thank you for a great GUI tool for Java in Eclipse - and thanks in advance for any consideration to allow it to work for Java 9, 10, and 11.
