LiveCode - Andoid SDK - Java compatibility chart?

Hi Tiemo,

Currently Java 9 and 10 are not supported, because of some packages being
reshuffled/removed/renamed in these versions, so LC does not find the
expected tools in the expected location.

So this is a bug in LC, not a compatibility issue. There is a bug report

However, we should have mentioned this temporary restriction on the lessons
pages. I will make sure we add it now.

So for now we advice people to install *only* Java 8.

In my setup, I have installed:

SDK Tools v24.4

The older versions of Android SDK Tools now are a bit difficult to find, as
they are well-hidden in Google's archives, but for anyone interested:
