[Haskell-cafe] Haskell Actors, Linda, publish / subscribe models?

I am trying to figure out what Haskell libraries can be used to build
publish / subscribe communication between threads running both in the same
and different address spaces on the net.
For my needs any of these models will work:
- Actors [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Actor_model ]
- Linda tuple space [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linda_%28coordination_language%29 ]
- Publish / subscribe [

I need to build a framework to coordinate task producers / consumers
distributed in the same and different address spaces. I need to scale a data
processing application somewhat Hadoop-like way yet in more flexible manner,
without Hadoop-specific distributed FS constraints.

Looking through Applications and libraries/Concurrency and parallelism:

I found Haskell actor package [
http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/actor ] that
fails to build with ghc 7.0.

Please advise on latest working libraries.


All the best,
Dmitri O. Kondratiev
