As far as we are concerned in my company, we are still evaluating which
Java version to support in our next product release. Some of our clients
are still stuck on older appserver release which still requires Java 5
(eg WebSphere 6.1).
But I would completely understand JDOM 2 to require Java 6, and this
would simply be another good reason to provide support only starting
from Java 6.
Thank you for asking.
