Unless there is a glaring need, I would not change the stable branch. The stable branch is supposed to maintain a uniform API and be about bug fixes. Changing the required ancillary libraries and programs needed to build Octave might not necessarily qualify as an API change, but it would be annoying. Just because Oracle is no longer supporting Java 6, i.e., deprecation, doesn't mean we need to enforce that on our users. It's up to them whether they want to upgrade or not.
For the development branch, there is no issue advancing the required minimum version. And, if we can maintain our release pace, that is only 6 months away.
