Subject Re: Ivy upcoming release - where we stand
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 05:16:02 GMT
Since the latest released version of that library is 1.58, I think we 
should use that version, unless there's a specific reason to not use it. 
A quick compilation of Ivy with this library and checking their docs for 
JDK compatibility suggested no issues with 1.58.
