Subject Re: [Math] Java version
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2015 14:28:23 GMT
Maybe nobody is interested to upgrade the Java version if they are not
forced to. If nobody force them, then CM will have to support Java 6 even
for 5.0 release. The sooner we drop support for older version, the better.
I'd say that current and current - 1 versions(i.e. 7 and 8) are more than
enough.
