In October 2008 Vaclav Pech started a pet open= -source project called GParallelizer with the intenti= on to build several easy-to-use Groovy-based DSLs around the Fork/Join and = the ParallelArray concept implemented as part of jsr-166y. A thin abstracti= on layer allowing to run Groovy closures asynchronously was also included. = Under the impressions of Scala, the actors abstraction was added shortly af= ter and has gradually evolved from a mere experiment into a usable implemen= tation. Some time later, inspired by Jonas Boner's experiments with da= taflow concurrency, the concept of dataflow variables, streams and tasks ha= s been included as well as the Clojure's agent concept has been implemented= .
In September 2009 Dierk Koenig, Alex Tkachman, Russel Winder and Paul Ki=
ng joined the team, the project moved to Codehaus under a new name -
In October 2009 the dataflow abstraction has been enhanced with dataflow= operators and an initial Fork/Join convenience layer.
Since December 2009 GPars has a logo .
The team made their first release under a new project name in December 2= 009 - GPars 0.9 came out with a fancy User Guide .
From the increasing amount of feedback and comments it become evident th= at GPars is gaining some attention. GPars has been presented at several con= ferences in Europe and North America (e.g. W-JAX 2009, JAX 2010, Jfokus 201= 0, GeeCON 2010). You may also check out a more complete list of Presentations and Events..
Jon Kerridge from the University of Kent joined GPars and contributed hi= s JCSP wrapper library, called Groovy CSP, to the= project code base.
GPars reached another milestones in May 2010 with the 0.10 release, 0.11= in October 2011, 0.12 in May 2011 and 1.0 in December 2012.
The most recent release, 1.1.0 arrived in July 2013.
