Antonio (& Wendy)'s sentiment is correct here.
As an open source project we need to honour compatibility and make api
changes according to semantic versioning rules.
A lot of production environments are old and or legacy, and security
updates required infrequently.

At the same time Brett, I do think it's time that we do AutoTag-2,
Request-2, and Tiles-4, putting them onto Java8.
It's more important at this point in time to be attracting, to our head
of development, new developers than new users. Users that need Java7
still have that option ofc w/ the current versions.

Antonio, what version of Tiles are you running on Java6?
And do you have Java8 installed on your development machine/laptop?
