Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move to java 8 for 2.17?
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2016 14:47:42 GMT
I think it's time to start the switch, because many of our clients, libs etc. are already on

I don't think it will be easy to have a stable codebase immediately.

being a bit set back it's still in reach so moving to 8 seems sensible
