'; java - Android Studio keeps changing "project-jdk-name" in misc.xml - LavOzs.Com

We are using Android Studio (currently 3.6) on two machines (macOS).

The .idea/misc.xml file keeps changing the value for project-jdk-name from "1.8" to "1.8 (2)" back and forth.

.idea/misc.xml change

This has been going on for a while (at least since 3.4/3.5). It's happening for all projects. Both installations are configured to use the embedded JDK (Project Structure > SDK Location > JDK location).

  • How can this be stopped?
  • Where does this name even come from?

Thanks for your help!
