This is the New & Noteworthy page for CDT 9.11 which is part of Eclipse 2020-03 Simultaneous Release

Installing CDT 9.11.* on Eclipse 2020-06 and later requires a workaround when using Java 8

CDT 9.11 only requires Java 8 to run. However a new feature in Eclipse 2020-06 and later means that the install wizard may prevent installation. The workaround is to disable "Verify provisioning operation is compatible with currently running JRE" in Windows -> Preferences -> Install/Update. See Bug 564407.

Starting with CDT 10 Java 11 or greater will be required. See CDT/User/NewIn100
