Trying the new SAM types and collection methods

Hello, everybody!
I've been trying the lambda prototype for a while and it's being a good experience.
I used this to clone (which creates the directory "C:\lambda\langtools" in my machine):
hg clone
this to compile the langtools:
ant"C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_22""C:\Java\jdk1.7.0" -Dimport.jdk="C:\Java\jdk1.7.0" build-all-tools
and these options to run my application:
Now I saw that the URL for the new things that I want to try is: (I suppose)
This is where my doubts start. When I click with the right mouse button on the directory "C:\lambda\langtools"
the TortoiseHg presents me some options like "Synchronize" and "Update". I don't know if I have to pull the changes
from the above URL in this directory (langtools) or if I have to create another directory (for example, "C:\lambda\jdk")
and how to compile the files after that. I haven't tried anything of these yet because I was afraid of messing my
langtools installation.
So I would like to have your help telling me how I should proceed to update and compile these new features (SAM types
and collection methods).
Thank you very much.
