    Its a vague error, but I think the IDE is trying to tell you it doesn't like Java 8. Are you perhaps trying to use the Java 8 early access version?

    EDIT: uh it says higher up in the list that it is using Java 7 for compilation. So perhaps there is some wonky setting somewhere that is setting a -source of java 1.8, which is of course not valid in Java 7.

    Yeah man, thanks for this.

    I changed the language setting to java 7 and it worked.
