Pains & Desires
To see the version of jabba installed:
To see ALL the available versions of Java:
To see all the versions of Java 13:
Then choose the Java distribution you like and install the latest version.
For example looking at the above choices you might choose "email@example.com".
You can install it through jabba with this command:
This will install the latest 1.13.X version of the openjdk flavor of Java, which is 1.13.0 (keep in mind that the dashes represent pre-releases). It should automatically switch your current shell's Java version to the version you just installed as well.

That's all for now. Happy coding, err' body!
