> So already you can run 2.x with JDK8 and some degree of classpath
isolation, but I've discussed the motivation for a 3.0 on the previous
thread. We had issues in the JDK6 days with our dependencies not supporting
JDK6 and thus not releasing security or bug fixes, which in turn put us in
a bad spot. Classpath isolation we are still discussing, but right now it's
opt-in and somewhat incomplete, which makes it hard for downstream projects
to effectively make use of it. The goal for 3.0 is to clean this up and
have it on by default (or always).
