I've also tried to build master branch with Java 9 and I've found the following issues:

wicket-util: it seems that java 9 has changed date formats to be closer to the Unicode standard: https://www.infoq.com/news/2017/02/java9-cldr-ldml. This breaks some unit tests wicket-extentions: importĀ  javax.annotation.Resource is not used and not available in the new jdk wicket-cdi-1.1: there are some cast exceptions during tests execution. At the moment I can't be more specific.

I've created a branch for Wicket with java 9 here: https://github.com/bitstorm/wicket/tree/wicket9. I've solved the issues for wicket-util and wicket-extentions

Our build was not successful on Java9
I have migration in plans, but not right now ....

Wicket itself was not buildable for me with Java9 when I tried last time

Does any of you use Java 9/10 ?

I have the feeling that Java 11 will be postponed. Some bigger
libraries/frameworks will have issues upgrading to 11.

Browser versions topic seems to be popular so here are some stats

Wicket 8.0.0M1 was release Jul 2016 [1]

Since then Google Chrome has changed 15 major releases [2]

This seems to be common practice right now ...

Maybe it worth to release more often?

The issue with CGLIB looks serious, but I don't think we should
Wicket 8 because of it. Wicket 8 has already a lot of API changes and
features and moving away from CGLIB would further complicate the
path. In addition, I guess it won't be a simple task to get rid of
so I don't see any reason to not release Wicket 8 while we work on
delicate issue.

My 2 cents.

Current version is Java 10 (non LTS)
Maybe we can release 8.0.0 and add this to Wicket 9 ?

The issue is that you can't upgrade to Java 11 when you are running
CGLIB due to its use of sun.misc.Unsafe.

This will cause problems. I'd rather ensure we have a good path
forward, and Java 11 is in september. We can't break API in 8.x so we
are stuck with CGLIB apis we expose.

Unfortunately CGLIB usage is not private/internal to wicket itself
is exposed in a couple public APIs.

Of course, if we had relesed Wicket 8 with CGLIB in it, this problem
would still exist, and perhaps Wicket 8 would be a short lived
maintained version if we were forced to remove our dependency on
(which is unclear at the moment)
