Java8 support
And did we drop support for Java6? Or is it being deprecated, so we
can drop it in next release.

Didnt the JCA adapter get hardened too?

And what happended to that Apache shiro security plugin? didnt it get
added to 5.10 or was it 5.9?

About the change log, maybe we should have a in the root
of the source code, so its very easy to just add a note in there as
part of the commit.

Then when we do the release we can look there and add to the wiki page.
