Hi.
I've just published a blog post called Implementing, Abstracting and
Benchmarking Lightweight Threads on the
JVM<http://blog.paralleluniverse.co/2014/02/06/fibers-threads-strands/>,
which describes Quasar <https://github.com/puniverse/quasar>'s
implementation of lightweight threads.

In particular, it explains how we've adapted some of java.util.concurrent's
classes to work for both (plain) threads and fibers (Quasar lightweight
threads), by combining both into an abstraction called
strands<http://docs.paralleluniverse.co/quasar/javadoc/co/paralleluniverse/strands/Strand.html>
.

I thought some people here might find it interesting.

Ron
