The module which prompted my original question---a popular one which we
don't host---is fixed now.
I wrote a script to check the versions of class files in the modules we
host. I found that the current versions of the following modules have
class files compiled for Java 6:
A Victory Denied
Red Star Rising
Star Fleet Battle Force
Star Trek: Expeditions
Star Trek: Fleet Captains
The Devil's Cauldron
1914: Twilight in the East
OCS Baltic Gap
OCS The Blitzkrieg Legend
OCS Case Blue/Guderian's Blitzkrieg II
OCS Reluctant Enemies
This is few enough that we could contact the maintainer of each module
and ask that a new version be released with compatible class files,
giving them a bit of time to do it before we do a release which adds the
class check. This way should minimize the impact of the change on
So, my plan is, today:
* Release 3.2.13 without the class check.
* Notify the maintainers of these modules to fix them.
Then, sometime in the future:
* Release 3.2.14 with the class check.
Thanks, everyone, for commenting on this. It's important that we get
right things which could affect so many users.
