Thanks for sending this out.
Leif has done a similar thing in the controls repo. Once his change gets
integrated this week, the minimum required build of JDK 8 will be b87.
I should have sent this out yesterday. I have added a new property file:
rt/build.properties that defines the current version we use to build FX,
and the minimum version required. Developers are encouraged to look at
this file. At some point, we may add a minimum version check in our
build scripts to fail the build early with a clear message (rather than
failing at some random point with a compilation error).
