LinearSVC missing in Apache Spark 2.1? Non-Linear Kernels in Spark 2.2?

Can you please confirm (or refute) the following two statements?

  1. Support for Support Vector Machines on SparkML (not talking about RDD based implementation) is only available since Apache Spark V2.2.0 (since it appears in the 2.2 API doc only https://spark.apache.org/docs/2.2.0/api/java/org/apache/spark/ml/classification/Classifier.html
  2. Support for Support Vector Machines on SparkML currenty doesn't support non-linear classifiers using kernels (again, not talking about the RDD based implementation)
