Loom - Fibers, Continuations and Tail-Calls for the JVM

PLEASE NOTE! Go to the Wiki for additional and up-to-date information.

The goal of this Project is to explore and incubate Java VM features and APIs built on top of them for the implementation of lightweight user-mode threads (fibers), delimited continuations (of some form), and related features, such as explicit tail-call.

This Project is sponsored by the HotSpot Group.
