JetBrains EAP apps now use JDK17-based JBR

This is great news. All JetBrains apps on Linux are now usable. Only on the EAP versions for now.

The right thing to do is to remove all the tweaks put in with JDK11 and before and use the vanilla settings. However, one still might want to bump the JVM max memory -Xmx parameter up from the relatively low default of 750MB to 2G. This can be done via the JetBrains toolbox.

I’m pleased that this has happened, but it’s been a painful time having to use JDK11 as the JBR on Linux thus far. Looking forward…
