Subject Re: [VOTE][Lang] Update to Java 6
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2012 21:45:20 GMT
volunteers maintaining [lang] have to work in the more comfortable
conditions they need - if keeping the Java5 backward compatibility
became more a pain than something to enjoy in their spare time,
there's no reason to continue getting crazy with the risk they lose
the interest - and [lang] won't be released anymore.

so, +1

all the best,
-Simo
