Java 10 problem
#1
(using Windows 10 Pro x64 on a laptop with i5-5200U). Disclaimer: I only have a vague notion of what Java is, never did any programming.

After upgrading to RouteConverter 2.23.6 I got this notification: "Java 1.8.0_171 contains a fatal bug in JavaFX on Windows. Please update to Java 8 Update 152 or Java 9 or 10."

I thought: why not get the latest version: 10? Strangely, the official location where I always get my Java: https://www.java.com/en/download/ completely denies the existence of Java 9 or 10. But I found 10 deep down in the developers areas of oracle.com: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/j...17026.html
But Java 10 is giving me problems. The most important: it breaks up my tracks on the map:

It should look like this (with RouteConverter 2.23.3 and Java 8.171):

Other problems I have:
  • It keeps opening with the map pane minimized. It doesn't remember my preferences
  • It does not zoom in on the area when I open a .gpx
  • On a low zoom level the fragments of the track come together, but it is 2-3 km's out of position.

Another remark: When browsing the developer pages I noticed that there is a Java 8.172 with in it's release notes many remarks about JavaFX bugs that were fixed. But Java 8.171 does not update itself to 8.172 ?!?

Edit: inserting Google photos doesn't seem to work here, changed them to URLs

Hello,

I do not think that's a Java bug. I think it is a problem in the optimization algorithm.
Can you put the sample data in a zip-file and post it ? Christian will look at it then.

That looks strange. Maybe the Webbrowser component in Java 10 is a lot different from that in Java 8. Or not supported by Google.

Two users reported similar problems but I cannot reproduce them. Sounds weird.

No, frankly I don't get the concept of having two minor versions published at the same time that Oracle practices with Java 8.

In the German forum a user sent me a track and described the same problem. With Java 10.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.13.5 and with Windows 7 in a VM that track is always displayed completely.

So what's different on your machine?
