Hi everyone,

I'm glad to announce that I finished a port of libdispatch to Linux and 
Windows during the last days. Except the source interfaces (which differ 
too much between Windows and Linux) the API should be fully operational. 
The majority of your original tests is passing - some of them still need 
to be ported to build and run on all platforms. As I did not manage to 
understand your code completely, I did a complete rewrite and merely 
reused your api and general ideas.

For achieving "blocks support" on the majority of the used compilers I 
added lambda support from the upcoming C++0x standard.

Additionally I implemented (for those who need and use it) an interface 
to integrate libdispatch into applications developed using the Qt framework.

As my port is a bit more than a patch, I named it libxdispatch and it is 
currently available by going to http://opensource.mlba-team.de/xdispatch 
- I'm really curious about your comments.
