Yeah, it can be confusing. The module system was merged into the main 
JDK 9 downloads about a year ago, it's also been refreshed several 
times. There are a number of open issues around the design so the Jigsaw 
EA builds will often a bit ahead with changes to support proposals and 
discussions on those issues. At this time there then are only a small 
number of changes that aren't in JDK 9. We will be bringing those 
changes into JDK 9 soon (using the process proposal for critical changes 
due JDK 9 rampdown).
