Included in the .NET 4 Framework Beta 2 is a more robust and faster version of PLINQ. Between B1 and B2, PLINQ changes have mainly been under the covers, so hopefully no need to rewrite any of your applications to see the improvements.

Last time, we covered Tasks being detached by default and some refactorings in our multiple-Task continuation APIs.
Last week, I had the privilege of touring around Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan, speaking about the new parallel computing support in Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4. Many folks I spoke with were interested in getting a copy of the slide deck I used,

Last week, we talked about how TPL adopted a new, better cancellation model. Today, we’ll cover a change that makes Tasks Detached by Default,
The .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 is now available!
MSDN Subscribers can download it today, and it will be generally available for download on Wednesday. More information is available at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd582936.aspx. Additionally, one of the really exciting things about this Beta release is that it’s “go-live”;
It’s fall, and that means conference season! In November, members of the Parallel Computing Platform team will be descending upon both PDC09 in Los Angeles and TechEd Europe 2009 in Berlin. We’re extremely excited to see all of you there and to discuss the new support for parallel computing that’s coming in Visual Studio 2010,
In a week, I’m going to be traveling through Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, speaking about parallel computing, Visual Studio 2010, and .NET 4, primarily at corporations during the day and at user groups in the evenings.
If you’re in the area and interested,
The Task abstractions in .NET 4 run on instances of the TaskScheduler class. Two implementations of TaskScheduler ship as part of the .NET Framework 4. The first is the default scheduler, which is integrated with the .NET 4 ThreadPool and takes advantage of its work-stealing queues.
Along with the release of the .NET Framework 4 Beta 1, we’ve just published a slew of samples that demonstrate using Parallel Extensions in a variety of ways. You can download these from Code Gallery at https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ParExtSamples.
These samples include raytracers,
In addition to the Betas of Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4 being available for download today, the MSDN documentation for .NET 4 Beta 1 is also available. This includes quite a bit of useful information about the new parallelism constructs.
