Parallel Extensions part of the .NET Framework 4.0


Friday, last week, the Parallel Computing Platform team at Microsoft announced that the Parallel Extensions will be part of the .NET Framework 4.0. Not only will be part of it, but it will be a core part of it.


So you will find the Task Parallel Library sitting in mscorlib.dll and PLINQ in system.core.dll, which is a good news because by integrating everything in the .NET core, you do not have to be concerned from a deployment and versioning perspective.


If you want to have more information on this topic, the October 2008 issue of MSDN Magazine is just full of content on parallelism, sign that the days of exponential increases in CPU speed are gone J.
