Subject Re: Some thoughts about the architecture of camel

Here's another thought.

We will continue to support 2.x for at least another year. Would it be less confusing if we
released 2.6 in Dec, and 2.6.x in 2011 (when needed) on jdk 1.5 and the other 2.7 and up releases
on jdk 1.6 only? Give people enough heads up to get used to the idea?

How does that sound?

saying that he'd be scared if:

jdk 1.5
