Ein neues großes Release mit Java 8 Unterstützung, siehe Ankündigung unter https://mailman.cs.umd.edu/pipermail/findbugs-discuss/2014-July/004029.html.
The primary changes are: FindBugs supports Java 8 now (both as runtime and target platform). We don't recognize all of the new Java 8 features, or detect many Java 8 specific bug patterns, but we can analyze Java 8 code without getting runtime exceptions. FindBugs requires minimum Java 7 as runtime environment! FindBugs uses ASM 5 now which means that some 3rd party detectors based on FindBugs 2.x/ASM 3 has to be upgraded. See details in ASM documentation. For people who need to run FindBugs using a Java 5 or 6 runtime, you should stick with the FindBugs 2.0 branch.
