I am releasing the first alpha of LuaThread 1.1. It works with Lua 5.0.2
and has been tested (though not extensively) in Win32, Mac OS X and
Linux. Please find bugs and help me kill them all.
* What is LuaThread?
LuaThread enables the Lua programmer to create preemptive, concurrent
Lua programs, in which several threads of execution coordinately perform
different tasks in parallel. The library runs both on Unix systems
supporting the Pthreads standard and on Win32 systems (natively).
The functionality is provided in two parts: routines needed by Lua core
to control parallel access to its internal structures and,
independently, functions providing Lua scripts with the ability to
create and synchronize multiple threads of execution.
