Hehe, good question :) Now, noone knows when 2.2 final will be out, so
it might be in two months or it might take another year if people might
loose interest/energy.

But I think our first milestone of 2.2 will be stable and a "full
replacement" of 2.1.x, so we will recommend to prefer 2.2M1 over 2.1.8.
The only thing missing might be some blocks handling etc.

Now, I'm not against adding binary releases for 2.1.x *but* then someone
has to do it - the build system has to be updated, we have to think
about providing two binary releases one for jdk 1.3 one for jdk 1.4 and
so on. If someone does the work on the build system, I'm happy to do the
binary release then :)
