As a heads-up, I plan to push the fix for the following issue some time
 RT-40691 : Update the JDK version used to build FX to JDK 8u40
Once pushed, the check for the minimum version JDK will fail unless the
JDK version is at least 8u40-b26 (meaning 8u45 or 8u60 will be fine as
This will allow us to remove some workarounds that we currently have for
Swing bugs that are fixed on the JDK side in 8u40, and will also allow
us to run unit tests that we have disabled when running on earlier builds.
Please update your JDK to a minimum of 8u40 in order to continue to
build FX after this fix goes in.
