ANNOUNCE: V1.3 of just::thread released for linux and Windows
« on: January 15, 2010, 11:06:34 AM »
I am pleased to announce the release of V1.3 of just::thread for both Ubuntu Linux and Windows.

This release includes the following changes:

  • Support for the new std::async function for launching asynchronous tasks with return values. This allows you to quickly and easily take advantage of the available hardware concurrency without excessive oversubscription.
  • Support for the new std::atomic_future class template which allows a single reference to a shared future value to be updated from multiple threads.
  • Support for 64-bit Windows has been added to the Portability Bundle
  • The <cstdatomic> header has been renamed to <atomic>
  • The std::unique_future class template has been renamed to std::future
  • Plus various other small changes to bring the code into line with the current C++0x working draft
