Parallel Extensions to .NET Framework 3.5

It seems there is no end to microsoft innovation with .NET; the latest being a managed model for data & task parallelism.  An MSDN article delves into this technology (TPL) and illustrates how the new Parallel.For syntax can be more effective then using native ThreadPools

In addition another team been working on parallelising LINQ with a new technology called PLINQ.  Interesting this library wasn’t originally built on top of the TPL’s stack… although there is plans to redevelop the engine to make use of the new TPL extensions.

It seems the dynamic language push is coming to the fore in all areas of the .NET framework.  Now all we need is a new&innovative way to enable debugging these threads and handling parallel exceptions!
