|Re: [m2e-users] moving m2e to java 8 after mars|
Looks like a perfectly reasonable step to me. On a related note .. is there any reference to when this change will be made by the Eclipse IDE itself. I could nto easily find any references to it online.

Just a heads up. I plan to change m2e minimal runtime execution environment to java 8 for the next release after 1.6/mars. I don't have a "killer" feature that makes java 8 absolutely required, but I believe staying current with java language and libraries will make m2e little more interesting to existing and future contributors. Also, I don't expect this change will affect majority of m2e users until Eclipse N**** yearly release sometime in June 2016, at which point Oracle java 7 will be out of public support for 14+ months and java 7 compatibility will not be required by many. If you have any comments or concerns, please post them here. -- Regards, Igor _______________________________________________ m2e-users mailing list m2e-users@xxxxxxxxxxx To change your delivery options, retrieve your password, or unsubscribe from this list, visit https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/m2e-users
