I am currently evaluating the task library currently in the vault for production use. The library is very well thought in my opinion, thank you very much Oliver for providing it to the community.
It seems it was scheduled for review before but now it isn't. Vicente was the review manager. Is the library still intended to be reviewed? Is there some active work in the library? What about other libraries task depends on?
The bound queues used in thread pools always causes the thread submitting task to wait if the queue is full. In our use cases, we need to fail the queuing, rather than wait. Is there any interest in adding this functionality to the library? In case there is I could perform the programming and testing.
Thank you again.
