# Release Notes for JavaFX 17

## Introduction

The following notes describe important changes and information about this release. In some cases, the descriptions provide links to additional detailed information about an issue or a change.

As of JDK 11 the JavaFX modules are delivered separately from the JDK. These release notes cover the standalone JavaFX 17 release. JavaFX 17 requires JDK 11 or later.

## Important Changes

### The src.zip file moved to the top directory of the JavaFX sdk

The `src.zip` file, which is delivered as part of the JavaFX SDK in support of IDEs, has moved from the `lib` directory to the top directory of the JavaFX SDK.
Application developers may need to adjust their IDE settings so that the IDE can locate the file in its new location.
