The following JEP with scope "SE" has been moved to the Candidate state:

  462: Structured Concurrency (Second Preview)

    Summary: Simplify concurrent programming by introducing an API for
    structured concurrency. Structured concurrency treats groups of related
    tasks running in different threads as a single unit of work, thereby
    streamlining error handling and cancellation, improving reliability,
    and enhancing observability. This is a preview API.

A JEP in the Candidate state is a feature deemed worthy of consideration by
the JDK Project, but with no commitment to deliver the feature in any
particular release of the JDK Project. Later, the JEP may be moved to the
Targeted state, which indicates that the feature is expected to appear in a
specific release of the JDK Project.  For more information about states, see
the JEP Process document:

A JEP with "SE" scope that reaches the Targeted state will be listed in the
Specification of the Java SE Platform JSR which corresponds to the targeted
JDK Project release.
