Xe3 was a typo.
Xe3 seems to. At least they advertize it ....

I did not claim that it's a brand new language construct (or anything
else), I just said "feature".
If the code snippet I mentioned is compilable even with D2009, only the
library is new.
Nonetheless to me it seems rather silly that they offer a dedicated
language construct ("parallel for" / "future") with Prism and suggest
using another language construct (anonymous method) for exactly the same
purpose with Xe8.
Regarding fpc, I am aware that "anonymous method" had been discussed
here. I did not take a deeper look into same.
Is / will the syntax be the same as with Delphi ?
Will the fpc library provide the appropriate classes for doing
"TParallel.For" as described ?
