Subject Re: [VOTE] Adopt Java8 as Baseline for 1.10 on master Branch
Date Tue, 22 Mar 2016 18:02:45 GMT
I don't mind which version we go with, but I would like to see the main Ant home
page be clear about which Ant version to use, based on installed Java version.

Could we have a compatibility matrix or something equivalent, on the main page?
Something that takes into account the TL;DR crowd :)
