So I had meant to write a bunch more on software transactional memory in the coming months, and I still plan to, but I’m going to be putting those plans on hold for a bit. After giving a talk on our usage of STM in a real application at CppCon I’ve been asked to write a paper on our experience with STM for the transactional memory working group of the C++ standardization committee. That’s going to suck up the time that I would usually spend writings here – what little of it there is – for the foreseeable future. I’ll post the paper here when it’s done and then resume writing about STM in a less formal capacity.
