You have to make a cut somewhere.

There are always a number of very small, low priority bugs and platform
issues in any release.  Drill is now on a monthly release cycle so triaging
a minor bug as something that doesn't stop shipping has very little

On the other hand, delaying by 3+ days is more than a 10% delay in the
monthly release.

Your characterization of this issue being a "quality" issue is also a bit
of an over-statement.  The problem was that several dependencies worked
differently on Java8 than Java7.  The fix involved changing the version of
these dependencies.  Changing dependency versions is not a small change and
requires a full QA cycle since it takes serious thought to decide what
impact the version change might have.  The best way for that to happen in a
reasonable way is to simply put this fix in the next release.
