Subject Re: Minimum Java runtime version for proposed upcoming Ivy release
Date Thu, 18 May 2017 09:26:35 GMT
The current version of Groovy has 1.6 as the minimum but is our maintenance
stream.
The upcoming next version will require 1.7 and versions with 1.8 as the
minimum are not too far away.

Ant 1.9.x is still on Java5 but Ant 1.10.x requires Java 8.

I don't think Gradle uses any Ivy classes any more.

I'd recommend 1.7 since most active projects will be releasing on 1.7/1.8
and then after a release, if all goes well activity-wise, I'd then bump the
Ivy version and target 8.

Cheers, Paul.
