Quick update: Turns out that Apple’s java implementation of webapps can only support Java 1.5, so for now, we’re going to keep supporting 1.5 at least through the 3.x series of Xuggler releases.
For our next release (3.2) we plan to remove Java 1.5 support. As far as we know from the people we’ve worked closely with, no one is actually using Java 1.5. But if you, please let us know by end of this week so we can figure out if we need to revisit this.
Why are we removing Java 1.5 support?
- Sun is deprecating support for Java 1.5 in 3 months.
- There are some Java 1.6 optimizations we’d like to take advantage of in Xuggler that we can’t today.
