Subject [DISCUSS] Time to finally drop Java SE 5 support starting the 2.1 codebase?
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 17:27:31 GMT
OK, I know we've had this discussion for the 2.0 release, but now that
you cannot receive free support updates to Sun/Oracle Java SE 5, I don't
see why we would continue supporting it in the trunk code that will
eventually become the 2.1 release.  It is definitely a headache to
continue building with 1.6 but support 1.5 for runtime and verify it by
running our JUnits on 1.5.  Also, we have the 2.0.x branch to support
1.5 users, so the debate about not allowing 1.5 users to move up to JPA
2.0 support no longer applies.
