Scala 2.11.0 was released in April 2014 and support for 2.11.x ended in Nov 2017. Scala 2.12.0 was released in Nov 2016 and Scala 2.13.0 was released in June 2019. Given this, it's time to consider dropping support for Scala 2.11 so that we keep the testing matrix manageable (it takes nearly 6 hours to run the unit and integration tests with the 3 Scala versions) and for better interoperability with Java 8 functional interfaces (first introduced by Scala 2.12).
Describe the new thing you want to do in appropriate detail. This may be fairly extensive and have large subsections of its own. Or it may be a few sentences. Use judgement based on the scope of the change.
