Snow Leopard question

Recommended Posts

Does the current version support multiple cores? Do you plan on leveraging GCD in a later release?

 

Storyist is a Cocoa application, so it is able to take advantage of the multicore support built into the OS. Things like network fetching and some low-level operations already occur on threads other than the main thread. What GCD does is make it easier for developers to execute tasks in parallel, so if there are tasks that lend themselves to this (like import and export), I'll add support as appropriate.

 

If you read Apple's "New Technologies in Snow Leopard" page, you probably saw the sentence "Once developers start using GCD for their applications, you’ll start noticing significant improvements in performance."

 

True for scientific applications or other applications that have tasks that able to be executed in parallel. Not so much for word processing applications.
