I just created a new 0.11 snapshot:

SVN tag:

The bits are also available in a Maven 2 repo at:

This is our candidate 1.0 spec and API and we're now making the final
few tweaks to bring the RI and TCK into line. Here's the plan from now:

- End of this week or start of next (9/2 latest), send the TCK
coverage report and RI results to this list
- End of next week or start of following (9/8 latest), submit the
spec, api, RI and TCK to the JCP to start the EC final approval
ballot. The ballot is open for two weeks.
- Week of 9/22 (if we pass the ballot), submit the final materials to
the JCP for publication
- Week of 10/6 final spec published.

We'd hoped to be able to provide access to the TCK before we got to
this stage but apparently we are the first JSR to request this and the
legal gears grind too slowly to make it possible. EC members will have
access to the TCK once the final approval ballot starts. Java EE
licensees will have access to the TCK once the spec goes final and
we're working on an eval license for non-EE licensees.
