manual: Compile to Java 5 Bytecode

Reported by: Rurban Owned by: Evenson Not Org
Priority: major Milestone: 1.6.0
Component: other Version: 1.5.0

Since rc0 to 1.5.0 you removed one part of the outdated compile to Java 5 Bytecode,
but one headline still is "Compile to Java 5 Bytecode". It's now 6-8.

Please change to "Compile to Java Bytecode"

The default target for the compilation is indeed Java 6 (see <>), but we haven't implemented the Java 6 verification scheme introduced in bytecode 50.x. So, we are in a weird state where our compiler indeed emits "50.0" as the class format, but with the old ("original") bytecode verification present.

I need to investigate this a bit, but will change the headline in the User Manual to something more accurate when I decide what that statement should be.
