If the idea is to roll out a bugfix release that people are awaiting
then I do not see the point in updating the minimum java version and
changing the code to use new language / jdk features.

This will just limit the use of the bugfix release, as not every
application using it will have been upgraded already. Also, every change
might introduce another problem, but this is up to the judgement of the
maintainer(s).

For the release afterwards (i.e. 1.5), I think it is fine to apply all
the changes, and updating the minimum java version in minor releases is
ok and has been done for other components already.

Just my 2 cents

Thomas
