There are a few minor nags in 3.0 which I would really like to get 
solved in a 3.1 or 3.0.1.

After that I am fine with updating to java 8.

As contribution is everything from writing patches to telling your 
friends how awesome jmeter is, I have to say: I don't know ;)

Right and that is why we will update to java 8 after the (hopefully

If everyone else thinks we should update to java 8 right now, I might 
change my mind, though.
