Processing 4.0 alpha 1

Revision 1270 - 18 January 2019

This is a massive update! With the help of Sam Pottinger, we're working to get Processing to run with Java 11. This will give us a more stable platform for the next few years.

In the process, there are also significant updates which include updated Java syntax support and lots of other long-awaited features.

We've started a Changes in 4.0 document to keep track of all the details.

We recommend using a different sketchbook location for 4.0, to avoid confusion with things that might be incompatible with your 3.0 work.
