That is good news.

I checked the maven repository. The jar manifest says it was built  
with 1.4.2. It is that version
which maven users are getting, so no problem there.

I am going to bundle the 1.4.2 version in my next release, and add  
some documentation to dependencies and FAQ to explain
the workaround for Java 6.
