One of the changes for PDFBox 2.0.0 (from what I gather from the PDFBox ‘Ideas’ 
page), is a switch to Java 1.6.

We discussed a switch for FOP that required a higher version of Java (I believe 
it was 1.6, but don’t recall).

But I can’t find anywhere on our site that indicates what the minimum Java 
requirement actually is. I’d like to update the site to include the minimum 
requirements if someone can let me know what those are… ;-)
