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
From what we know, some servers (such as WildFly) already require Java
8 to even boot up so this limitation is pretty much pointless there.
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.
