With the new C++ Standard and Technical Report 2 (TR2), multi-threading iscoming to C++ in a big way. TR2 will provide higher-level synchronization facilitiesthat allow for a much greater level of abstraction, and make programmingmulti-threaded applications simpler and safer.As a guide and reference to the new concurrency features in the upcoming C++Standard and TR2, this book is invaluable for existing programmers familiarwith writing multi-threaded code in C++ using platform-specific APIs, or inother languages, as well as C++ programmers who have never written multithreadedcode before.
