TPL Dataflow (TDF) is a new .NET library for building concurrent applications. It promotes actor/agent-oriented designs through primitives for in-process message passing, dataflow, and pipelining. TDF builds upon the APIs and scheduling infrastructure provided by the Task Parallel Library (TPL) in .NET 4, and integrates with the language support for asynchrony provided by C#, Visual Basic, and F#.


The author of the above Introduction, Stephen Toub, was a guest on yesterday’s (1/25/20111) DotNetRocks podcast, Stephen Toub is more Parallel than Ever where the TPL Dataflow was discussed (along with other async stuff, like the Async CTP released at PDC10, etc).
