Re: macos 10.11

Hey Adam,

I'm guessing the impact of not supporting 10.11 would not be that great
but I'm not a mac user so I cannot be certain.  Are there any mac users
opposed to this?  I'm fine with this if there is no uproar from the mac
user community.

This would be a good idea from this Mac user's perspective.

As a related question, can we state a policy on the website[1] that we will support OS versions that are within their developers' support cycles? Older versions may work but we don't support them.

This would allow deprecating support for Vista as well. Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 would be removed in April.

If we are explicit in this, we can move compiler and library support forward to eliminate a number of work arounds in the codebase. It also allows users to predict KiCad support cycles into the future.
