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

  2. Nick says:

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

  3. Yiannis says:

    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?

  4. Ilya Zakhartsov says:

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