Just found out about the new PowerThreading Library for Silverlight, by Jeffrey Richter of Wintellect.

This is definitely worth checking out.

Now Available:  PowerThreading Library for Silverlight, by Jeffrey Richter of Wintellect

Available now for immediate download from http://Wintellect.com/PowerThreading is the latest version of Wintellect’s free Power Threading Library by Jeffrey Richter.  This new version includes a DLL for use by Silverlight applications and components.  In particular, the Silverlight version includes Jeffrey’s popular AsyncEnumerator class that allows developers to use a synchronous programming model while performing asynchronous operations. This allows developers to create very fast and responsive applications while using very few threads. The class also offers various coordination activities such as cancellation, timeout, discarding, and so on. Limited free support for the library is available via http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/PowerThreading/, while full-featured support is available via contract with Wintellect.

“With Silverlight, developers have the best of both worlds: the ability to create rich client-side applications deployed via the web. In order to keep the web browser responsive, Silverlight allows only asynchronous operations; synchronous operations are not allowed. My Power Threading library allows developers to easily perform asynchronous operations while using a synchronous programming model. This is useful for any application performing I/O operations with file streams, web site requests, web service requests, and more.” -Jeffrey Richter

Very cool.

Thanks for checking out this post!
