Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox Framework moving up to Java 7

+1 for Java 7 and +2 for Java 8 ;-)

Equinox is used in many environments where there is very long-term support for older Java levels. So far I have needed to keep the Equinox Framework at a Java 6 level to be able to use the latest versions in these environments.

Unfortunately Java 6 is getting harder and harder to support while also accommodating new "hurdles" being presented with Java 9 [1]. I will be updating the Equinox Framework to Java 7 for Oxygen [2]. Please voice any concerns you may have in the bug report [2]. Although I expect very little concern since most have already moved onto Java 8!
