Subject Re: Switching to Java 1.5
Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 08:23:46 GMT
Java 1.5 has the most important changes for FOP, viz.,
internationalization.  Generics will also be good for our code
base. If moving to java 1.5 instead of 6 is required to keep a large
number of users on board, I agree to moving to that version.
