|[dtp-dev] DTP plugin version change to minor increment only|
The minor segment number must be incremented when a plug-in changes in an "externally visible" way. Examples of externally visible changes include binary compatible API changes, an updated BREE(Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment), significant performance changes, major code rework, etc. Another way to know when this version number should be changed is by exclusion: it should indicate changes that are neither bug fixes (indicated by the service segment) nor breaking API changes (indicated by the major segment). When the minor segment is changed, the service segment is reset to 0.
Example: From the version 2.2.7, a minor change
would lead to 2.3.0.

So the change to Java 8 implies a minor segment change.
