Subject Re: New release

2.2.x works fine with Java 8, it just doesn’t compile with Java 8.  I suppose if a given
user’s build system uses classdep, then it would be a problem as well.  Do people often
use classdep?  I never have.

Having said that, there was a patch contributed to make the build system work under Java 8.
 I’m planning to apply that patch soon and spin a release of 2.2.x as well.

us to push for a new release ASAP. Peter’s done a ton of work, there are improvements needed

we have to do something.

to org.apache.river, and produce a new release. Lets get this done over the next quarter.
I know there are alot of details with this proposal, and esoteric discussions surrounding
“what are we”, but we either release or die. IMO, its that simple.

needed for 2.2.2 we can still provide support for it. Release early, release often.
