Minor or patch?  i.e 3.3.9 is current, would this be say 3.3.10, or 3.4.1?

Just RUNNING under JDK8 explodes horribly for us on some of our modules ( still requiring
antlr 3 - which is known to just not run under JDK8 ).

So if a release required changing JDKs and then broke builds - that's definitely not a patch
release, but I'd also be hesitant over a minor release.

Toolchains are great - IF plugins actually support them, which is what - 4 maybe 5 plugins
in total? Sadly not many plugins fork a separate process to run let alone support tool chains.
