With regards to Remote Master, which requires Java SE to run, I notice that when installing Java SE 8 update 191 on Windows, it points me at page https://www.java.com/en/download/release_notice.jsp noting that Java SE may only be being updated for consumers until end of 2020. Businesses can licence Java for use after then, but that requires payment.

It's a while away yet, but any early ideas or plans on what to do about this yet? Maybe transition to a different Java-compatible runtime, assuming there is one?

The way I interpret that message is that support for Java 8 (and, to different degrees, earlier versions) will be terminated in the future. This is no more surprising than Microsoft dumps support for windows XP, earlier for mortals, later for those with big $$$.

The long term "solution" is of course to migrate to Java 10 (or later). RM already "almost" (seach!) supports Java 10.

If I am wrong, please correct me.

IrScrutinizer alread runs with Java 8 and Java 10.

Oh, that's much more straightforward than I realised. I didn't realise this was just talking about v8.
