I like NuGet because it removes the hassle of downloading and installing libraries. And sadly only small number of vendors is providing just package without installer. And I also like parallel/multithreaded programming. Crucial tool in my toolbox for parallel programming is Jeffrey Richter’s (Wintellect) PowerThreading library. The library is great and contains a lot of smart ideas (In fact the async/await feature in C# 5 uses similar concept as
AsyncEnumerator.) and some handy objects too. And it’s completely free.
Sadly it was not on NuGet. Hence I took the challenge and created the package. It’s called simply PowerThreading. Don’t take me wrong, Jeffrey is doing great job with this library and I’m and will be happy to maintain the package. He’s too smart to waste his time on this; spending rather the time on improving it, is more valuable.
