Hi Christoph,

No, OpenJDK 11 will not work yet. We will have to look into OpenJDK 8.

Kind regards,

    This one I can't confirm. For me, it only works with the Oracle JDK 8. With my OpenJDK 8 the build shows these javafx dependency errors.

    I'm using this mercurial repo:
    So, should I be able to build with OpenJDK11 (as opposed to the documentation that explicitly says it should be JDK 8)?
