    Is there a particular timeframe for when the 2018.3 GA release will be available?

    Update won’t run because it doesn’t try to elevate privileges like your updates normally do.

      Can you please create a ticket in with more info. How do you update your IDE(patch, Toolbox App, snaps)? OS? Which version of IntelliJ IDEA are you currently using? Thank you!

    Just updated, and apparently exporting a JavaFX 11 project to jar, even the most basic one, will fail. Is there hope to get it fixed before 2018.3 or is it going to happen after?

    I was unable to update from 2018.2.5 to 2018.2.6, it offers to download the entire release 🙁 OS is Fedora 29.
