[jira] [Created] (PIVOT-998) Update "trunk" to require Java 8

JIRA jira@apache.org
Roger Whitcomb created PIVOT-998:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Update "trunk" to require Java 8
                 Key: PIVOT-998
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-998
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: all
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Roger Whitcomb
            Assignee: Roger Whitcomb


Since "trunk" is unreleased as of yet, and Java 8 is quite mature, and Java 9 is due out later this year, and there are features of Java 8 (such as lambdas) that we would like to take advantage of for new development, it seems wise to require Java 8 going forward for the "trunk", while leaving the 2.0.x maintenance branch at Java 6.  Previously we had upgraded to requiring Java 7 for "trunk", but that version is stabilized and no longer being updated...
