We’ve posted an update to our sample pack at http://code.msdn.com/concrtextras for Visual Studio 2010 Beta2 . The newest thing is this drop of the sample pack are the three new header files in the ConcRTExtras folder. Here’s what these files contain:
ppl_extras.h contains additional stl style parallel algorithms like parallel_accumulate, parallel_partial_sum, parallel_transform, parallel_all_of, parallel_any_of, parallel_none_of and also parallel_for_fixed, parallel_accumulate_fixed, parallel_partial_sum_fixed.
agents_extras.h contains additional useful message blocks like spriority_buffer, bounded_buffer, alternator, join_transform and a recalculate_buffer.
concrt_extras.h contains useful wrapper classes and functions from the runtime itself like concrt_suballocator a std::allocator built on Concurrency::Alloc, task_scheduler, schedule_group and schedule_task which are simple wrapper classes around Scheduler and ScheduleGroup that offer functor support like PPL for scheduling tasks.
These are located in the Concurrency::samples namespace and the team will be blogging about many of these over the coming weeks, but please feel free to ask any questions here or in the forums.
