Subject Re: Do we (have to) support Java 1.6?
Date Sat, 12 Jul 2014 20:46:25 GMT
If we need java 7 well drop java 6 support but nothing mandates it and java
7 doesnt bring anything that important in its api to not do it. Java 8 will
be another story for sure...And we are not commons so we can do a n+1
dropping what we want more easily IMHO
