digitalmars.D - ETA on multiprogramming

reply JMNorris <nospam nospam.com> writes:
Just curious, but what is the eta D offering good support for multicore / 
multiprocessor / multithreaded / multiwhatever programming.  Is this 
supposed to be a D3 feature?  If so, perhaps I should expect an tea of 
about a year or two?  Or perhaps this is expected to be available with D4 
with perhaps an eta of, say, 3 to 4 years?  Please understand that I'm NOT 
expecting an answer like "Q3 2008".

I think it's a D3 feature. But we're trying to be careful to not sabotage it in advance by putting some thoughtless feature into D2. I think it'd be a good idea to finalize D2 sometime in the fall.

Wow, a Saturday night (actually Sunday morning) at midnight reply. I'm impressed. Now, should I be impressed favorably or unfavorably? :-) Seriously, thanks for the reply. -- JMNorris
