## New Project Loom Early-Access buildsProject Loom Early-Access builds19-loom+4-115 (2022/2/13) are available  with the related Javadoc .
These EA builds are based on JDK 19 (jdk-19+9). In those builds, the APIs for Structured Concurrency and Scope Locals have been moved into the `jdk.incubator.concurrent` incubator module. Note that the module name may change later. To use those APIs, simply use `--add-modules jdk.incubator.concurrent` at compile and runtime.
Those EA builds are provided under the GNU General Public License, version 2, with the Classpath Exception and are produced for the purpose of gathering feedback. Use for any other purpose is at your own risk. Proper feedback should be sent to the `loom-dev` mailing list .
