What is the rationale for wanting to keep BREE levels as low as
possible? Even Java 7 enters the âno further public updatesâ phase in
April of this year. JRE 7 users in the normal update pipeline were
upgraded to Java 8 in January. Are there really users out there who
_/cannot/_ run a newer version of the JRE despite security and
performance implications of running an old version? I am guessing that
if Mars were to require Java 8, there would be some initial grumbling
over having to upgrade, then everyone moves on in a better and more
secure configuration.

Hi

But this is important.

When osgi.utils moved from Java 5 to Java 6 that made Eclipse almost
unuseable as a Java 5 platform; not really a problem.

Now jdt.core does nearly the same thing for Eclipse as a Java 6
platform. Are we ready to go that far? IMHO it certainly should be
discussed and announced.

  Hi Ed

  Yes, this was intended. We never announce BREE changes.

  Hi

  Is the recent change in BREE for org.eclipse.jdt.core from Java 6 to
  Java 7 intended?

  Was it announced?
