JAX-RS 2.0 Support

Apparently Jira is still on JAX-RS 1.1. Is this right? If yes, Is there any plan to support JAX-RS 2.0 or 2.1?

As a plugin vendor, we would like to be able to serve response in a non-blocking async fashion. The main reason is our service layer api is async. I think we’re not alone in that, probably many other vendors are in the same situation.

JAX-RS 2.0 and above, support async response service via @Suspended and AsyncResponse both of which live under javax.ws.rs.container packages.
