Default [Q] Java 8: Upgrade or Not?

hey XDA Devs

so the new Java 8 is out and looks pretty nice. obviously android doesn't support the new features, bells and whistles, but can we say it is fine to upgrade to JDK 8 and not interfere at all with ADT? or should we hold off? ive seen folks on Stack Overflow say to stick to 1.6 and not use 1.7 for android application development, but those posts were dated and I have no clue as to their credibility this day in age.
