It is my intention in the new year to finish creating GPars 2.0, mostly
by just ripping out everything to do with ParallelArray, along with all
the APIs directly related to it, leaving just the dataflow, actor,
active object, agent, etc. stuff. I.e keep everything of GPars except
the bits that have been made redundant by Java Streams. 

GPars 2.0 will be JDK8 and later only, which seems fair enough as no-
one should really be using anything earlier, except on Android – and I
suspect no-one is using GPars on Android.

So my question behind the build question is which builds of Groovy
should I be testing GPars on, and is there a way of shipping a new
GPars 2.0 for Groovy on JDK8 and GPars 1.3 for Groovy on earlier JDKs.
