Package change in jdk-8u11-windows-x64

This discussion should never have come to openjfx-dev. You should be 
posting ControlsFX questions to the controlsfx-dev list at
You also posted a bug report at [1] which I have just responded to.

In short, Kevin is right. ControlsFX has two branches - one targeted for 
8 and the other for 8u20. You are trying to build the 8u20 branch with 
8u11. This will not work and you need to clone the default branch, 
rather than the 8u20 branch.

Sorry on behalf of the ControlsFX project for leaking discussion over 
into openjfx-dev.
