We have increased the minimum version when necessary in the past. We
last did this in 2014 when we made 1.1.32 required for 8.0.x. We did
that shortly after the 1.1.32 release.

I'd be happy increasing the minimum required version for 8.5.x to 1.2.14
and the minimum recommended version to 1.2.14 for 8.0.x and 7.0.x.

We might want to think about announcing End of Life for 1.1.x. Given
that 1.2.x really is a drop-in replacement for 1.1.x, I'm not sure there
would ever be another 1.1.x release anyway.
