      Description

      Summary

      Add a new enum constant RELEASE_11 to javax.lang.model.SourceVersion for the JDK 11 release.

      Problem

      The SourceVersion enum needs an enum constant for each release being modeled.

      Solution

      Add the enum constant RELEASE_11.

      +     RELEASE_11;

      Also, the output of SourceVersion.latest() is changed to RELEASE_11.
