For some definitions of minor release:
503 files changed, 34754 insertions(+), 19651 deletions(-)
Excluding antlr/, test/, hunks consisting purely of comments and
stripping white-space only changes reduces the diff to
317 files changed, 12971 insertions(+), 4237 deletions(-)
which is saner but was still a pain to review.

The changelog suggests that the fix for that bug was simply the addition
of "default-jdk" to the dependencies. Is there something else which is
specifically reliant on the new upstream version? (Other than not
wanting to maintain an older version).
I have to admit that the introduction of three new packages, the time
since the previous upload and the reasonable number of reverse
dependencies taken together do make me ponder whether the package should
at least spend a little while longer in unstable.
