Hey all, any road map for java >= 9 support? This is slowly starting to become a real issue for us. If not even an official word is getting out that this is getting prioritized this year, then most likely 2 of our teams will be forced to switch to another framework .. which would be a shame since we really like ktor ❤️

Java >= 9 support in what sense? Kotlin (and Ktor) already runs on Java >= 9. The only thing missing is that the Kotlin compiler still generates Java 8 bytecode, but that doesn't stop you from using JDK 9+ APIs on Java 9+ runtimes.

Those are compile errors. You should still be able to run the compiled artifacts. I run ktor on jdk 11 without issue. Unless something has changed in recent versions.
