The Manticore project is an effort to design and implement a new functional language for parallel programming. Unlike many earlier parallel languages, Manticore is a heterogeneous language that supports parallelism at multiple levels. Specifically, we combine CML-style explicit concurrency with fine-grain, implicitly threaded, parallel constructs. We have been working on an implementation of Manticore for the past six months, this paper gives an overview of our design and a report on the status of the implementation effort.
