Yes, sorry, I didn't read carefully enough. After the XZ for Java 1.9 release I wanted a short break but it's already been a month. Outside the Java version there are multiple XZ things to do (not all on xz-devel) and I think I should do a few of the small ones first to shorten the list a little before your big threading patch. I know my handling of the threading patch may at this point appear both rude and ridiculous but I just don't get enough things done, I'm really sorry. :-( -- Lasse Collin | IRC: Larhzu @ IRCnet & Freenode
