Subject Re: Karaf 4.0 switch to Java8?
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2015 20:40:37 GMT
I'm not so sure that I like the idea of removing the support for a JDK
Version between two minor release. If we keep 7 for 4.0 we should keep it
for the entire 4xer line. Especially since the industry does not move as
fast as we do...

Kind regards,
Andreas
