Whatever Happened to iThreads?

jdavidb writes "In my recent distributed systems class I was required to write several multithreaded client-servers (they were both) in Java. As usual, I thought constantly about how Perl would be better suited for the job, except that the threading in Java was so obviously useful that I actually felt Java worked out better.

A year ago, use Perl; carried the story that the iThreads mailing list had been established. I read p5p summaries every couple of weeks that told of dozens of bugs being squashed on the road to usable iThreads. Unfortunately, it looks like that push has fallen off the face of the earth.

I know Perl 6 will have threading taken into account from the very beginning, but I was curious if anyone was still working to give us iThreads in Perl 5."
