There was a discussion ~6 months ago: http://apache-flink-mailing-list-archive.1008284.n3.nabble.com/DISCUSS-Bump-the-minimum-Java-requirement-to-Java-7-for-Flink-td2243.html#a2249

Result was to not drop support for it. I'm not sure if anything has changed (with regards
to the arguments made). You can start a new discussion if you think we should consider dropping
support. In any case, let's not mix it up with the discussion here.
