Subject Re: Stop maintaining 2.4.x?
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2018 17:02:46 GMT
I don't think calling it 3.0-jdk7 is a good thing to do: the runtime would
be different, with different bugs. Plus, it would add confusion on some
build tools, with random dependencies on jdk7, or indy, or ...

I think we should focus on getting 2.5 out, and then go with 3.0 asap.
