The web interface of jenkins-2.298-1 informs the user, that java-11 is recommended to run jenkins.
However, the package still has a hard dependency on java-8.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.298-1

Steps to reproduce:
Visit web interface of up-to-date jenkins installation.

To run jenkins with java-11 nonetheless, you can edit /etc/conf.d/jenkins:

$ diff -Naur jenkins /etc/conf.d/jenkins
--- jenkins 2021-06-16 09:25:47.895048193 +0000
