Hi Martin,

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).
