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

Introduction: The Vector API in JDK 17 - YouTube


This is very important.
Please codingame devs, update to Java 17.
It is sad that we can’t use newer versions.

The current java version is 8/11 but java 17(latest LTS) has been out for over a year now and there’s a lot of nice things that were added, please update to 17.

Please update


Hello, I’m an old user solving a looooooot of puzzles in Java. I noticed this post and I think it would be a great idea to upgrade the Java version on CodinGame. It has been 1 year since the post has been created…
