Threading Building Blocks Packaged into Ubuntu Hardy Heron

Filed under
Ubuntu

The spread of Threading Building Blocks (TBB) into Linux distributions is gaining momentum: TBB will be packaged into the upcoming Ubuntu Hardy Heron release.

If you’re not familiar with TBB — it’s an open source C++ template library that simplifies multithreading of applications to take advantage of modern multicore computers. TBB was originally an Intel commercial product; it was turned into an open source project at OSCON 2007.

I’m happy to be able to say that I played a small role in TBB’s inclusion in Ubuntu Hardy Heron release. I’m the open source community manager for the Threading Building Blocks project — which in part means that I get to spend lots of time on the #tbb channel (on FreeNode.net) talking to people who are working on TBB in various aspects.
