Seems weird to me that you would drop JDK support in a patch fix on 2.4.x.  Seems more appropriate to keep 2.4.x on JDK 7, 2.5.x (if you ever create it) on JDK 8.  3.0.x already requires JDK 8.

Hello everyone,

as you probably know, Weld 2.4 (CDI 1.2 impl) currently supports even JDK 7.
We are currently considering dropping this limitation and moving to JDK 8 as minimal version.

Therefore, please let us know if dropping JDK 7 support presents a problem for you or if you see any other reason for Weld 2.4 to stay JDK 7 compatible.
