Yes (including JDK 15).

I assume potential issues in "built-in" Nashorn are addressed in JDK 8-14 as for any other OpenJDK component. Besides, [standalone (external) Nashorn only works on JDK >= 11](https://github.com/szegedi/nashorn/wiki/Using-Nashorn-with-different-Java-versions), and I think it makes sense that IGV stills support JDK 8 for minimal disruption (this was the only JDK version supported before this upgrade).
