Subject Re: [lang] To Java 7
Date Mon, 24 Oct 2016 15:04:42 GMT
I don't think we need to keep arguing this, when we discussed this
last time we said we'll do an intermediate Java 7-version - if there
are too many screams (I suspect almost none) then we can be more
careful before moving to Java 8 afterwards, which would give the
biggest benefit (and need more help from Lang).

In a way Java 7 will mainly just give us style benefits and a couple
of code simplifications, which is important to make Commons Lang's
code more inviting for new contributors.
