We intend to raise the minimum supported Eclipse platform version from 4.5 to 4.6 in JGit/EGit 5.3.
4.5 was the last platform version running on Java 7 which reached end of standard maintenance in 2015.
This move will help to limit the number of target platform versions we are maintaining and allow us to
- generify all the getAdapter() methods in EGit
- and to add the smartimport bundle, which is supported starting from Eclipse 4.6, to the standard EGit feature.
