The “OTL book” has just been extended with a chapter on synchronization (22 pages). Basic understanding of synchronization issues and critical section usage is required as this chapter only deals with OmniThreadLibrary-specific support for locking.

Due to a strong language barrier we don’t hear from Turkish programmers much even though the programming (and Delphi) community in this big country is quite strong. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I received a proposal from that country to translate the OmniThreadLibrary book. We quickly set up a workflow (as the OTL book is still being written this is not a trivial task) and the book is now being translated.
Although I didn’t see more than a few translated paragraphs yet, I have great hopes that the initial Turkish release will join the ever growing family of the OTL books (English, Russian, Spanish) early next year. Until then, you can express the interest in the book here.
Great thanks go to Tugrul Helvaci for initiating the project and to Ramazan Gülbahar for translating the book!
