     JIRA dashboard for SE-scoped CSR items: 

We will be providing links for the specification build artifacts soon;

changes (which will eventually be part of the automated bundles, but is 
not yet) can be found at:


The feature is already integrated to the RI (for the brave, there is 
already IntelliJ support under the "X - Experimental" language level, if 
you want to test drive it.)
