In case you didn't hear: You can now try out an early-access version of
JDK1.5 (aka Tiger) via JavaLobby (http://www.javalobby.org).  The
version of JSR166 APIs in this release dates from mid-november.  But,
as mentioned before, you can use the current versions by following the
instructions at http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrency-interest/index.html
And appended below for convenience.

If you are running an early access or beta version of 1.5, you can
make sure you are running the current versions listed in the javadocs
on this site by getting the jar file at
http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrent/dist/jsr166.jar, and run using:
  java -server -Xbootclasspath/p:/somepath/jsr166.jar Program

(The "server" option is not strictly needed but is highly recommended
for concurrent programs.) And to compile code, use javac switches:
  javac -source 1.5 -Xbootclasspath/p:/somepath/jsr166.jar Program.java
