Release Notes

This is Drop 6. It includes:

Drafts of the Preface, Introduction, Chapters 2-7, Appendix B & C and the glossary
Sample code for chapters 2-7 and Appendix A & B.

The new material we'd like feedback on is:

Chapter 4 - Parallel Aggregation
Chapter 5 - Futures

You will need at least Visual Studio 2010 Express to run the samples. However, you will need Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate to use some the parallel diagnostic tools such as the Concurrency Visualizer.

Note: Visual Studio Express users will see the following message when you open the Visual Studio solution (.sln) file for each of these samples: "Solution Folders are not supported in this version of Visual Studio. Solution Folder 'Solution Items' will be displayed as unavailable." Although this folder is not available in Visual Studio Express, you can still build and run the projects. A separate "Book Samples - Express" solution is also provided. Refer to the README.txt file for a brief description of each project and which chapter it relates to.

Reviews for this release

Thank you for this excellent job. ---- just one remark: pdf page 28; "Credit Review Example Using parallel_for_each" the code sample is not up to date "UpdatePredictionsSequential" instead of "UpdatePredictionsParallel"
