I thought this would be of interest to the Haskell community:


"The ever-growing popularity of small multiprocessors is exposing  
more programmers to parallel hardware. More tools to spot correctness  
and performance problems are becoming available (e.g., thread  
checkers8 and performance debuggers9). Also, a few expert programmers  
can write efficient threaded code that is in turn leveraged by many  
others. Fast-locking and thread-efficient memory allocation libraries  
are good examples of programming work that is highly leveraged."

Viva le STM!
