Yeah that was also my first thought.


I would like to keep Camel 2.17 as-is on Java 1.7. Then if 2.18 is
Java 1.8+ then its much easier to remember as the numbers are aligned.

Camel 2.17 = Java 1.7
Camel 2.18 = Java 1.8

We can always release Camel 2.17 sooner, its been a while since 2.16,
so maybe aim for a release in next month?

A reason to keep it on 1.7 is also it would otherwise throw some Camel
end users under the bus anticipating they can use it on Java 1.7. Then
we can announce Camel 2.17 would be the last release with Java 1.7 -
even ahead of time.
