Nothing.  JIRA is supported on all versions of 1.8 except 25 and 31 where there are known issues.

And, in fact, we would strongly recommend using Java 1.8.0_40+ or higher, if you can, for any release from JIRA 6.3 on: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Java+8+Improves+JIRA+Performance+Dramatically
