v38 v39 100 100 * '''Cloud Haskell'''. The first version of Cloud Haskell has been released, aiming to bring Erlang-style distributed actors to Haskell [[http://hackage.haskell.org/package/remote]]. See also the paper at Haskell Symposium 2011 [[http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/simonpj/papers/parallel/remote.pdf CloudHaskell]]. Next, we're working on expanding the backend to work with HPC environments. 101 101 102 * '''Parallel GHC project''': '''Duncan''' 102 * '''Parallel GHC project''': 103 103 104 104 * '''Data Parallel Haskell'''. GHC 7.2 includes rudimentary support for Data Parallel Haskell — just enough for a little experimentation and to run simple benchmarks. We are working on significantly improving this for GHC 7.4. In particular, we aim to support the use of basic types and classes from the standard Prelude (replacing the minimalistic mock Prelude that DPH programs had to use so far), and we are working on drastically improved space and time complexity for shared data structures in nested parallel programs, such as the Barnes-Hut n-body algorithm.
