Subject Re: [VOTE] Drop support for Java7 in master branch
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2017 03:48:15 GMT
Owen,
The end of support from Oracle is just one aspect of it. As I mentioned
earlier, we already seeing many libraries (hikaricp and jetty) move to
requiring java8. Note that hadoop 3.0 line already requires java8 as well.
As long as java8 is widely supported and available on systems users are
likely to use for upgrading to a new 2.x release, I think we should be good.
