A new project has been started to enhance Linux Threading in the areas of POSIX compliance and SMP optimizations. To this end, it will introduce a new M:N threading model. The package is licensed under the LGPL and any interested developers are invited to participate. The project is located on IBM developerWorks in the Open Source Zone and is sponsored by IBM. There is currently a "pre-alpha" version of the code on the web site that can be downloaded.

From the web site:

"The Next Generation POSIX Threading Project is a derivative of the excellent package GNU Pth. Two new versions now exist, both of which achieve near full POSIX compliance. Both versions of the package are licensed under the LGPL."
