As noted by several other people already, Jenkins releases which are
essential for security, performance and feature-availability reasons
require Java 8.  Since Ubuntu 14.04LTS is still a current, supported
release it's difficult to understand how a core component of a server
platform like Java would lag behind for such a long time.

Upgrading to Ubuntu 16 is on our roadmap, but it's non-trivial.  In the
interim, I have no defensible reason to offer people who are
legitimately concerned about the delay in our plans to upgrade Jenkins.
