Increment the maximum recognized class file major version number from 55 to 56 in JDK 12.
For every major release the class file major version number should be incremented, regardless of if there are any changes that mandate such a change.
The platform will be modified so tools such as the Java compiler and launcher will consume and produce 56 version class files.
The class file format version ranges table (table 4.1-A in The Java® Virtual Machine Specification Java SE 10 Edition) will be updated to include an entry:
Java SE class file format version range 12 45.0 ≤ v ≤ 56.0
