  • a simple model of task submission with receiving queue,

  • constructs for expressing fine-grained parallelism,

  • asynchronous condition handling across thread boundaries,

  • parallel versions of map, reduce, sort, remove, and many others,

  • promises, futures, and delayed evaluation constructs,

  • computation trees for parallelizing interconnected tasks,

  • bounded and unbounded FIFO queues,

  • high and low priority tasks,

  • task killing by category,

  • integrated timeouts.
