Question about concurrent package races and updates

I have witnessed and can read a race condition in FutureTask (jdk7, jdk6).

However, there is a new version of FutureTask at oswego,
which purposely fixes the race condition.

Are new versions of the concurrency classes coming to jdk 7/8?  Or is
it better to add a race condition bug to database?  (I live under the
newbie impression that races are different bugs.)
