random ramblings on Delphi, programming, Delphi programming, and all the rest
RC for the new OmniThreadLibrary release is available here.
This version should work with Delphis from 2007 to XE7. Win32 and Win64 are supported for Console and VCL applications.
Thanks for the update. I wish that you could update the documentation and examples so that they accurately work with current sources without any compile errors.
When you find an example that doesn't work, just let me know. Add a post to the OmniThreadLibrary Google+ group, post a comment on this blog, or send me an email (my address is in every OTL source file). I'll fix it.
Are there any release notes available for 3.04?
They are in the download (history.txt).
Reposted here:- New features: - Implemented simple and fast Parallel.&For which supports only integer ranges. - Implemented Parallel.Map. - Added overloaded Execute methods to IOmniParallelInitializedLoop and IOmniParallelInitializedLoop so that IOmniTask parameter can be passed to the executor. - Implemented Run overloads that internally call Invoke to start thread worker. - Implemented TOmniValue.HasArrayItem. - Implemented TWaitFor which supports waiting any/all and is not limited to 63 objects. - IOmniTaskControl can wait on any number of comm handles and wait objects. That enables support for >60 tasks in the OtlThreadPool. - Implemented TOmniBlockingCollection.ToArray. - NumTasks parameter (OtlParallel) can be negative. In that case, specified number of cores will be reserved for other purposes and all other will be used for processing. Example: If NumTasks(-2) is used when process has access to 8 cores, 6 of them (8 - 2) will be used to run the task. - Removed project groups. - Tested with 2007-XE7.- Bug fixes: - Fixed race condition in IOmniPipeline termination code [tnx to Dean Hill]. - Creating parameters with the array overload (IOmniTaskControl.SetParameters(['From', 0, 'To', 99])) was not working. - Fixed problems in demos 33_BlockingCollection and 47_TaskConfig.- New demos: - 55_ForEachProgress - 56_RunInvoke - 57_For - 58_ForVsForEach - 59_TWaitFor - 60_Map - 61_CollectionToArray
Hi!!Can OmniThreadLibrary handle Database Application?
Yes. See http://17slon.com/otl/book/doku.php?id=book:howto:databases.
Talking about the book. Will we see a translation to Portuguese?
