Previous discussion on whether or not to remove support for javac 
-source/-target-/--release from JDK 11 settled instead on removing that  
functionality from JDK 12 [1].

That removal has now been pushed to jdk/jdk. [2] A small related 
enchantment shows the set of supported -source and -target alternatives 
in javac's -help output.
