Hi guys, the µManager team is chafing pretty hard against the limitations of Java 6. I know you posted a manifesto back in June that said you were planning to move to Java 8. What’s the current status of that? These are the issues I’ve seen in my searching:
Users of old versions of OSX (10.6 and earlier, I think) cannot upgrade. For our purposes, they’re unlikely to upgrade to newer versions of µManager either, so we’re not very worried about this case.
There have been some reports of plugin incompatibility, but nothing conclusive.
So it sounds like we should be in the clear to just upgrade to Java 8 and run ImageJ2, right? Are you aware of any important broken areas that still need to be addressed?
