Subject RE: [ALL] Switch to JDK 1.4 in a minor release - was: [configuration] Minimum required JDK version
Date Thu, 24 Dec 2009 22:58:29 GMT

I would not be shy about bumping the component version up by a major release to mark the change,
even if the component itself does not have 'major' changes itself.
