I just tried re-building my OS X app with this version - Update 4.
I am assuming that —overwrite is no longer an option because it is now the default only choice?

This one I’m not sure I’m understanding…
jdk.jpackage.internal.PackagerException: Error: Option [--mac-bundle-identifier] is not valid in create-image mode.

I had added this because the default generated bundle identifier at the time didn’t seem the best. It was IIRC the same as the application name or something one level.
My understanding is sort of best practice is to use a url or reverse url type id. 
But shouldn’t there be some way when creating the OS X application image to indicate this?
