Subject Re: ActiveMQ 6.0.0 required Java 8?

Actually, this is probably the right way to phrase it.  Maybe just on the
HOME PAGE of AMQ 6 just have a call out.

I think it’s fair to work on a new broker because ActiveMQ 5 would need a
lot of work in a lot of areas to modernize it.

That said. It think the 5.x series should also be maintained for a while.
So maybe just having them clearly explained that they are different things.

Also, is Apollo dead and development officially moving to AMQ6 ?  if so
perhaps the best strategy is to mark it as so.
