      Description

      We currently use an old version of SWT (3.7.2) to compile the javafx.swt module against and to run tests.

      We should consider upgrading to SWT 4.6 since some things cannot be adequately tested with the older version (see JDK-8143596). Also, the newer version will be required on Ubuntu 16, because SWT 3.7.2 does not support GTK 3.

          We should consider this for JDK 10.

          [~kcr] There are 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 and 4.6.3 available. Probably I am missing some other limitations, but I am going to use 4.6.3 for this fix, is this OK?

          That seems good.
