Subject Re: [crypto] On Java 6, really?
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2016 08:21:10 GMT
Then next release(after 1.0.0) must be a major release you mean?
If there are no potential users looking for JDK 1.6, dropping now should
be good idea IMO.

I also remembered that we wanted to mark 1.0.0 release as Alpha right?
(just a question)

Regards,
Uma
