My personal preference is to add features to 8.0.x but an invasive new feature or a significant
delay in Java EE 8 are two things that would make an 8.1.x branch more likely. At this point
most of the ideas I have are more around refactoring than new features and those could wait
until 9.0.x

On a related note, when I ran the unit tests last night I saw a couple of intermittent failures
that I'd like to try and get to the bottom of before tagging the next RC.
