Subject Re: [all] Java 5 vs. 6

In many cases the differences between Java 5 and 6 aren't noticeable.  If the project doesn't
require anything from Java 6, why require it?  I'm sure there are quite a few places where
it is still being used despite the end of support.

In short, if the project needs features found only in Java 6 then make it the minimum, otherwise
support Java 5.
