I just missed the birthday.

The JMM mailing list was 5 years old as of Thursday, the 24th. Happy

To give everyone an update, there haven't been any substantial
technical changes
after the last tweaks to handle non-terminating executions and
observable actions.

For the past three weeks. Gilad has been working on converting the spec
into language
and format appropriate for a chapter of the JLS, which will be the
definitive and primary
end-product of JSR-133. I haven't seen any of his work, but the JLS
needs to be
absolutely complete by July 11th, so I suspect/hope I'll see something
soon. For
the most part, Gilad is just reformating the document and doing some
editing for
clarity and better grammar (unfortunately, Gilad says that kerflooey
isn't a technical
term, and we can't use it to describe what happens to the semantics of
final fields when
you allow other threads to see the object before it is fully
