    <h2><a href="">Camel
2.7.0 drops support for java 1.5</a></h2>

         <p>After the last release camel-2.6.0 a few weeks the focused is changing.
It's time to take the lessons learned during the 18 months development of camel-2.x and bring
a leaner, faster, more scalable <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Camel+3.0+-+Roadmap"
title="Camel 3.0 - Roadmap">camel-3.x</a> to life.</p>

<p>In the meanwhile camel-2.x will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future.
Due to a few reasons however, like java 1.5 going EOL in Oct 2009 and the recent survey showing
virtual no interest in java 1.5 among the camel users, we decided that it is time to move
on. Since some effort will be required for migrating to a new jdk version we decided to bite
the bullet and drop support for older technologies as well.</p>

<p>Therefore, starting with <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Camel+2.7+-+Roadmap"
title="Camel 2.7 - Roadmap">camel-2.7.0</a>, only following technologies will be
	<li>java 1.6 (up to camel-2.6.x: both java 1.5 and java 1.6)</li>
	<li>spring 3.x (up to camel-2.6.x: both 2.5.6 and 3.x, currently 3.0.5.RELEASE)</li>
	<li>junit 3 (up to camel-2.6.x: both junit 3 and junit 4)</li>

<p>Depending on the community requests and interest in supporting the older technologies
above we may issue patch releases on a camel-2.6.x branch. Let us know on the users@ mailing
