Available java versions - only java 8, while java 17 is LTS

Now in codingame only java 8 is available. Currently java 17 is LTS.
What’s the problem in upgrading available java version?
Could java 17 be introduced?


I’d like to see Java be updated to the new LTS Java 17, not much more to say than just that. :stuck_out_tongue: I find myself trying to use newer features that are not supported by the editor on the website.


I would like to try the Vector Api (SIMD) introduced with Java 16 /17 / 18 JEP 417: Vector API (Third Incubator) . I think it would be fun to code your playingfield with full hardware usage.
And please think about the module.info as mentioned here: Looking into the JDK 16 vector API - Java Code Geeks - 2022
