When a release branch is created, it is understood that the first release on that branch will support some set of platforms. It is expected that all later releases cut from that branch (a release family) will support the same set of platforms as the first release cut from that branch. So, for instance, if 10.X.1 supports Java 6, 7, and 8, then it is expected that 10.X.2, 10.X.3, etc. will all support Java 6, 7, and 8.
