Intel open-sources parallelization Framework

CajunArson (465943) writes "An interesting article over at Ars Technica discussing Intel's recent release of its http://osstbb.intel.com/">Thread Building Blocks 2.0 templating library for C++. This library provides a higher level of abstraction for writing parallel code than normal POSIX or Windows threads provide. It has been pushed by Intel in the past as a similar concept to OpenMP, although its template nature means it is much more focused on C++.

Some interesting notes on Intel's earnestness in open-sourcing the project: Released under GPL version 2, it runs on non-Intel CPUs (even non-x86 as in the G5), and it is already ported to Linux and Solaris as well as Windows."
