> Now that Java 6 is going in Out-of-Life (and support without paying for it) it's time
to update dependencies and require Java 7 as a minimum version to build and run Pivot Applications.
> Of course maintenance branch 2.0.x will stay with Java 6 as requirements.
> Some related info:
> http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/eol-135779.html
> http://www.infoq.com/news/2012/08/ava-6-eol-extended
> And then, verify if disable (not delete for now) existing jobs on Jenkins that builds
the trunk with Java 6 ... anyway they could be useful to see if we have some incompatibility
with Java 6.
> Then, we can even remove few little tricks due to bugs (not fixed) in Java 6.
