Subject Re: Upcoming 2.0.5 release

Hi Jérôme,

     So far since Java 9 is not released yet, and the plans for the 
module system are still going through the JSR approval process (see: 
https://jaxenter.com/jigsaw-vote-java-9-interview-134091.html), I 
haven't tried to address anything with Java 9 yet.  I have run our own 
large Pivot application with a very early release of Java 9 (without the 
module system) and it worked fine.  Do you have specifics of things that 
don't work or you think need enhancement?

     As far as browser support goes ..... That would be entirely on 
Oracle's side.  There is absolutely nothing we could do without Java 
support for something other than the older browser plugin. But see here 
that this will be deprecated in Java 9: 
https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/jdk9_plugin.xml I have tested and 
Java Web Start still works with Pivot, so that is one option we still 
have....  Some browsers still work (Safari if you enable it, Firefox if 
you jump through hoops, Internet Explorer (but not Edge)).  Do you have 
other specific questions?
