Subject Re: Updating 3rd party dependencies
Date Fri, 03 May 2019 16:58:22 GMT
I don’t think a major version change should be necessary just because the JDK dependency
changed. Changing the major version number should tied to major changes in the project itself.

I am curious to know what dependencies now only run on Java 11.
