Hi Santiago

I know Java 7 is not exactly new. But I'm sure you know many
productions would not migrate to Java 8 tomorrow either.
How exactly we'd look back by using Java 7 ? IMHO is not only about
letting us play with excitement with new and cool features of Java 8.
JAX-RS 2.0 is brilliant even without one or two Java 7 interfaces
(AutoCloseable or whatever).

This process is not about targeting the 'bleeding edge' productions
where developers switch Java versions every month.

So we will look ahead and use the functional programming features or
something even better of Java 8, that would super cool. Without those
tricks 2.1 won't live I guess. Only part of the story though.

Please give me a little time for me to confirm if I can be listed as a
supporter, I'll get back on it asap.

Also, let me ask, what is the targeted release date for 2.1 (sorry, not
on my computer right now, no PDF reader here) ?
Thanks, Sergey
