Java 8 question

First I wish everybody on this forum a happy new year! So a new year and for me time to cleanout my computer and do some fresh installs. Mx does support java 7 but java 8 is already out for some time. Even in Eclipse I have to choose. In the documentation of Mx I do not see any mentioning of java 8. Could Mendix shed a light of the java roadmap? Regards, Ronald

Only recently Mendix updated to Java 7

How ever update to 8 should be scheduled soon as Oracle announced "End of Public Updates for Oracle JDK 7 after April 2015"
