Subject Re: Java 7 and 8 features
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2015 16:57:30 GMT
Hi,

What I see, is that most projects are struggling to move to Java 7, Java 8
seems out of range. There are a lot of opinions and both sides of each Java
version for and against. At the end of the day, it's about user feedback
and committer community involvement. The projects I help on also lack
manpower and maintaining more than one version is not I see folks wanting
to do. For myself, I usually want to work on the current version in
master/trunk and move that along. My work$ development is on Java 7 and
slated to switch to Java 8 in 2016 I would guess.
