It requires a Java older than Java 8, and Java 8 is available everywhere. For the new releases that is less clear, since ditaa is adding Clojure. I would bundle the old version to keep old documents working (I do not want org-mode to be volatile software that breaks existing documents with an update), but notify the user that a new version exists. : https://stevelosh.com/blog/2012/04/volatile-software/ Best wishes, Arne -- Unpolitisch sein heißt politisch sein ohne es zu merken [-- Attachment #2: signature.asc --] [-- Type: application/pgp-signature, Size: 1125 bytes --]
