On Monday August 29th, after the Sanity testing period, I will be commiting a change that will require a JIGSAW_HOME that is build jdk-9+132 or later. That build is now available for download from the JDK9 EA site <https://jdk9.java.net/download/>.
This updated JDK9 uses new GNU style command line options for the JDK 9 additions, and the older versions will be retired in the coming weeks. The JavaFX build will fail with the older JDK9 builds that do not have the new options. The supported options are defined here <http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/293>, and in general are not going to impact most developers.
Please download and reset your JIGSAW_HOME to point to jdk-9+132 (or later) now.
A last note: We still require JDK9 ea build 109 as teh bootstrap JDK ( JDK_HOME/JAVA_HOME )
Kevin, please review:
