The maven-bundle-plugin generates the following OSGi header by default which prevents the classes from being loaded in a Java 1.8 environment.
Require-Capability:; filter:="(&("
A quick try to use "version>=1.7" did not have any success so I decided to remove the header completely. I'll create and publish a fix release of the fn library and update Matterhorn's dependencies accordingly. Pull request will follow.

Any update on this? It prevents me from starting Matterhorn on most of my machines…

Yes, that should be the problem.

My guess is that it is just set up to require java = 7 instead of >= 7

Christoph, do you think you can take a look why the functional lib is not starting in Java 8?

Fixed and reviewed
