I had hoped to have JEP-181 integrated by now but it has been delayed 
while some documentation issues in java.lang.Class are resolved prior to 
the CSR being approved. I would hope to have this integrated by 
Wednesday or Thursday this week and it would then appear in the next 
promoted build.

If you are able to do your own build then the (near final) patch is 
available from:
