Build with bundled Java 8 for 2020.1?

Answered

I was looking at the 2020.1 EAP page and I see that there is no build with bundled Java 8. Has the Java 8 bundle been end-of-lifed and we will only get the bundled Java 11 going forward?

Thanks,

Yes, we plan to bundle IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 only with Java 11.

You can still download and use Java 8 runtime manually per https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544879 .

What's the reason you want to run IntelliJ IDEA on Java 8?

One of the plugins I use was incompatible with Java 11 as of the last time I checked. That was a while ago and I don't remember which one it was.

 

By the way, I think the 2020.1 EAP page is linked to a 2019.3 build, which isn't very helpful.

This page is a placeholder, 2020.1 EAP is not available yet and it was not announced.
