Eclipselink 2.5.2 final gas ben released on 4th July 2014. Why Glassfish 4.1 is still on 2.5.2 RC1?

On Glassfish there are a lot of Grizzly jars, while on GF 4.1 it is just glassfish-grizzly-extra-all.jar where a lot of Grizzly packages and classes are missing. One of them is org.glassfish.grizzly.threadpool.GrizzlyExecutorService that is used by the Thread Pool.

Please correct me if I'm wrong or please explain. I'm actually having problem with the max number of threads being created from Glasfish 4.1
