Re: new axolotl

Hi Necromancer, thanks for the quick reply. Yes, unfortunately you will need at least Java 11 to run axolotl, which is easily available online : https://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk/11/ or https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk11-downloads-5066655.html I ran the STS suite at 5...
