I just uploaded Guava 12.0 to Maven. You can install it using maven as
com.google.guava:guava:12.0 and com.google.guava:guava-gwt:12.0, or
you can download it by hand from:

http://search.maven.org/#search%7Cga%7C1%7Cg%3A%22com.google.guava%22

Release notes can be found at:

http://code.google.com/p/guava-libraries/wiki/Release12

Notable changes:

JDK6: Release 12.0 is our first release to require JDK6. Users
requiring JDK5 compatibility may continue to use Guava 11.0.2. We will
not be maintaining a JDK 1.5 backport, but if anyone wants to do so,
we will link to it.

OSGi: Release 12.0 contains an OSGi bundle.

Cache.stats(): Starting in release 12.0, stat collection is off by
default (to improve performance). To enable it, call recordStats.

Thanks to all who tested our release candidates. Please report any
bugs you encounter, and enjoy the new features.

Yay!! 

One small thing -  Link to Release 12 on guava home page points to Release 11 instead of 12.

Oops. Fixed, thanks!

One thing i noticed in Apache Gump (1) is that there are test failures with the latest build. Granted that Gump is an XP project that denies the version that is in the pom for projects it knows about, and gives them the latest build instead. So this is probably no more than a headsup. In Gump land, we mostly want guava, and you guys/girls have been fantastic on backwards compatibility on this library. Forcing projects to latest and greatest in our system has resulted in no more than deprecation warnings even if the project really wants an ancient version of Guava.

But if any Guava developers are interested, you can view Gump's results at (2). The failed tests are at the bottom of the red link, and the surefire reports are at the bottom of the link.

(1) http://gump.apache.org
(2) http://vmgump.apache.org/gump/public/google-guava/google-guava-reactor/

Very very glad to hear this!  Was hoping this benefit would not be only theoretical. :-)

It's telling me that's a bad link?

Thank you very much for the new release and all the great work here!
Guava is still one of my favorite java-libraries.

My favorite of the new Release might be the innocent looking
FluentIterable..
