Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Drill 0.6.0-incubating release
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 18:56:38 GMT
The unit test was only on Java 1.8.  That problem will be resolved in the
next release which will be in roughly a month from now.  The current
primary target of Drill is 1.7.

The number of reviewers for the release is an indication of how the
community doesn't view Java 1.8 as a critical platform at this time.
