Today we made available STM.NET on MSDN DevLabs. STM.NET is an experimental enhanced version of .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 that enables software transactional memory for C# programmers.
S. Somasegar, Senior Vice President Developer Division, announced the project in a blog posting, STM.NET on DevLabs.
Transactional memory is a technology that frees developers from worrying about the mechanics of fine-grained locking and synchronization in multithreaded applications by providing transactional semantics for reading and writing to memory. It enables developers to focus on application logic instead of the details of memory I/O when building multi-core and many-core programs.
STM.NET is available for download today. Share your thoughts and experiences on the project’s forum, and read more about STM.NET on the STM.NET Team Blog.
