    v17 v18  
    1313    * [http://pauillac.inria.fr/~maranget/papers/ml05e-maranget.pdf Compiling pattern matching to good decision trees] by Luc Maranget, ML Workshop 2008 
    1414 
    15   * '''Improve parallel profiling tools'''.  Satnam Singh and Simon Marlow have made a start on some tools for visualising the behaviour of parallel programs, but there is much more to do here, and it'll be eagerly adopted by users. 
     15  * '''Improve parallel profiling tools'''.  Starting with [http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/threadscope/ ThreadScope], incorporate performance-counter events, visualise more runtime events, include source-code information in the profile. 
    1616 
    1717  * '''Implement some low-level C-- optimisations'''.  During 2009 we expect to have the new C-- code generation route in place, and that will open up new opportunities for doing classic compiler-course optimisations on the imperative C-- code.  There is more than routine stuff here, because we can use our [http://research.microsoft.com/~simonpj/papers/c-- generic dataflow framework] to do the heavy lifting.  Here are some [wiki:BackEndNotes particular ideas for optimisations] we'd like to implement.

    4545  * Incremental or concurrent GC, for reducing pause-times.  Perhaps via implementing mark-region GC in the old generation. 
    46  
    47   * Improvements to [http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/threadscope/ ThreadScope]: incorporate performance-counter events, visualise more runtime events, include source-code information in the profile.
