Subject Re: GPars 1, 2, and 3

if you need more recent gpars documentation, i'm working on v2.0 of it that
you can see here:
 the download page does show gpars 2.0 but it's just copies of 1.2.1 that
i've renamed as placeholders.
since jsr-166Y may be dropped there are a number of gpars features that may
disappear, so we're hoping to clarify this issue before summer release.
