    120116The GC has seen some work too: the goal here is to enable each processor ("capability" in the internal terminology) to collect its private heap independently of the other processors.  It turns out that this is quite tricky to achieve in the context of the current architecture, but we have made some progress in this direction by privatising more of the global state and simplifying the GC data structures by removing the concept of "steps", while keeping a simple aging policy which is what steps gave us previously.
