That is a fair point. And I concur, that until core ups its minimum JRE
requirement, compiler shouldn't move past that...

Raises the question should core up to 1.6... I don't see a pressing need

Lambdas are not until 1.8, and we don't do the crazy generics stuff that,
for example, forced Jenkins to require 1.6 to build. So without a pressing
need, I think core should stay on 1.5 for now

Leaving aside questions of compatibility, Java 7 as compiler default would
be a poor choice. After all, that would require JRE 7 as a standard for
running Maven, or using one of the Eclipse compilers. Otherwise, that would
be unsupported by the compiler.

Now that Oracle are controlling Java on OSX we can no longer "blame
Apple" - I'd love to see the default become Java 7 now.

And if one needs to lock down to the older versions, lock them down.

Good to know that Maven is now only 8 years behind.
