I'd like to see an easier way to invoke Tapestry server-side events from  
JavaScript (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-2225 has me and  
Jochen discussing some ideas) and better REST support (not just GET and  
POST). That's my main wishes. The AJAX thing could be easily backported to  
5.4.x when it's done.

Yes. :)

Regarding requiring Java 8 for 5.5, I think we need to discuss what are  
the pros and cons and then check the cost-benefit ratio. So far, Java 6 is  
required. Unfortunately, some companies are still stuck with pre-8 Java  
versions, even if 7 was already end-of-lined in April 2015  
(http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/eol-135779.html). I'm not against  
it. Java 8 is great. It's just about not imposing a requirement without  
disregarding the consequences.

I don't think we can.

Some more important issues may need to be backported, like the ones Geoff  
mentioned. But I guess they're bugs anyway . . .
