Alpha release 0.2 of ParaSail Compiler and Virtual Machine

We are now making available alpha release 0.2 (rev 1.5) of the ParaSail Compiler and Virtual Machine:

This release implements several important additional features, including queued parameters for operations on concurrent objects, floating-point and fixed-point numbers along with the universal type Univ_Real, and timers supporting delay for a time interval and delay until a specified timer value, or until a specific wall clock time. 

This release also includes two different version of the VM, one which simulates multi-threading on a single O/S thread, and another which uses multiple O/S threads to provide true parallelism on a multi-core/multi-processor machine.

Please read the release notes included in the above download for additional information.
