Version 1.6.1 of the Quark Framework for Java is now available. The full release notes are available here.
While this is a point release (for bug fixes and small features), it has a number of interesting features. Chief amongst these is the inclusion of concurrency modules. Version 1.6.0 included internal support for concurrent CAL but lacked the library support to make this convenient and practical. This release includes missing library support allowing parallel function application to be programmed elegantly.
The Eclipse tooling continues to improve in this version, with a new Quick Outline view, and other enhancements.
This release also includes a new document, "Getting Started with Open Quark", which aims to help new users determine where to find information in the other collateral.
As usual, we highly value feedback and contributions to the project. Please visit our discussion forum.
