Have a lot of fun trying out GPars 1.1.0!=20
A first release candidate for GPars 1.1.0 has been made available. The f= inal 1.1.0 GA should be expected in a few days. The 1.1.0 release is a grad= ual improvement of 1.0.0 with additions mostly in the Dataflow domain. Star= ting with 1.1 GPars requires Groovy 2.0 or higher. Check out the most notew= orthy new capabilities:
Get GPars 1.1.0-rc1, take it for a spin and plea= se report all issues so we can fix them before GA.
I'm happy to announce that after four years of development&= nbsp;GPars, the Groovy concurrency library, has just reached its 1= .0 mark. A fresh and crispy GPars 1.0.0 is now ready for you to grab or download and use on y= our projects. Also, the up-coming Groovy releases will bundle GPars 1.0.
Compared to the previous release, 1.0 brings several perfor= mance enhancements, considerable API updates, polished documentation and nu= merous functionality improvements, mostly in the dataflow area. Please, che= ck out the What's new section of the = ;user guide for the details. Full release notes a= re also available.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank all the Groov= y people, who have over time contributed in one way or another to the succe= ss of GPars. It is my honour to be part of such a helpful and encouraging c= ommunity. In particular, I would like to thank my colleague G= Pars commiters, namely Paul King, Dierk Koenig, Alex Tkatchman and Russ= el Winder, who we've been consistently pushing the project forward and with= out whom it would hardly ever get this far. I also greatly appreciate the s= upport we received from Guillaume Laforge, the Groovy supreme commander. Th= ank you all gentlemen!
Groovy concurrency times ahead!
We are almost there. The 1.0 release is just round the corn= er. To ensure that 1.0 meets your quality expectations we first prepared a = release candidate to test the waters. To take GPars for a test ride, please= download or grab it at the usual plac= es, check out the release notes and let us know if something is missing.
GPars-1.0-beta-3 has been made available for you to try out.
Apart = from the usual doze of features and fixes, including speed-up for some oper= ations on parallel collections or lifecycle events for dataflow operators, = there is one major change compared to beta-2 worth pointing out explicitly:=
Grab gpars-1.0-beta-3 and have a lot of fun with the= new release.
I'd like to direct you to my recent blog post detailing the use of Dataf= low operators. It uses the popular Game of Life coding excercise to illustr= ate the principles of the dataflow concept. Check it out at my personal blog.=20
