IMHO we're always pretty low on the Java version for a good reason.
I don't think many will notice an upgrade from Java 6 to Java 7 for plugins, especially since Maven already requires Java 7 for quite some time.

And I still like the concept that 3.x simply means "requires at least Maven 3", for both maven-plugins and shared components.
I would go for a archiver 3.2.0

currently I look at maven-archiver component and took a look to upgrade plexus-archiver from 3.4 to 3.5 but this in consquence needs an upgrade from JDK 6 to JDK 7 in this shared component...

Is this a way we could go ?

I think it's time in some areas to go that way...which needs to change the version from 3.1.X to 4.0.0 would be the logical choice but this breaks the idea of earlier assumptions to show with the 3.X the relationship to Maven 3.X ...

Or should we simply change to 3.2.X to show there is something change and make a clear note about the breaking change ?

What do you think ?
