"JEP 188: Java Memory Model Update" , the JMM wiki  and the
jmm-dev mailing list  seem quite inactive. (The latter point explains
why I'm posting to this list instead.)
The introduction of j.l.i.VarHandle  brought more access modes to
Java, but in a narrative and informal way. A paper by Bender & Palsberg
, addressing the formalization of the concurrent access modes, has
been published in 2019 but I'm not sure if it caught the attention of
the OpenJDK community.
So what is the current thinking for progressing the JMM spec?
