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.
It is expected and have been suggested Eclipse Neon (next year release) will use Java 8.
There are actually now plugins in Mars that requires Java 8 (sapphire is one) and thats annoying when rest of train works with Java 7 ;/
so +1 on updating to java 8 for next year release train. /max

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 makem2e little more interesting to existing and future contributors.Also, I don't expect this change will affect majority of m2e users untilEclipse N**** yearly release sometime in June 2016, at which pointOracle java 7 will be out of public support for 14+ months and java 7compatibility will not be required by many.
