After I've did a refactoring on the plugin I'm working on, other collaborators sent messages that they are still using Java 6 + IDEA 14 and that they can't compile it anymore.
There's also a couple of features that we could better make use of from switching to a newer Java version like 7 or even 8.
I know that Mac users are still using Java 6 (or at least most of them, no?) but, stll, Java 6 has ended support almost one and a half years ago and I've seen there's an attempt to ship out IntelliJ IDEA bundled with Java 8 for Mac.
If this question has been answered or addressed already then I appologize, can you please paste the link here?
