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.
