Valid point, it would definitely make sense to raise minor version in this case.
We are unsure if we will actually remove jdk 7 sipport, but at this point any request for
or any attempt at support for newer java versions presents a considerable pain because of
JDK 7 support.
Therefore I concluded I will ask on this mail and see if it would be ok to eventually
remove the support.

Subject: Re: [weld-dev] To drop or not to drop JDK 7 support for Weld 2.4?
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.
