A few weeks later than planned, preliminary test release 2 of JSR-166
is now available, at 
  http://gee.cs.oswego.edu/dl/concurrency-interest/jsr166/

Unlike the first release, this one should work "out of the box" on
solaris and linux-x86, requiring only some environment variable
settings after unpacking the (single) jar file. There is also an
emulation mode that works on other platforms, although very slowly --
suitable only for testing and evaluation.

Note that there's been a bit of rearrangement of classes and methods
since PR1.

We are nearing time for JCP Community review, so all feedback will be
especially welcome. And we are still interested in comments about my
"Locks" posting --

We are not 100% sure whether to remove it.
