Microsoft logoMicrosoft released a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 at its Professional Developers Conference (PDC) on Monday, and developers may be pleased with the new parallel computing capabilities now available in the CTP.

To better deal with the problems of concurrency, where threads of code run at the same time and sometimes share resources, Microsoft has added some new .NET Framework libraries to work with Visual Studio 2010. The point of the new libraries is to provide developers with profiling and debugging tools for parallel computing while using the familiar Visual Studio interface.
