Parallel Computing Toolkit 2.1 is now available and fully 
compatible with Mathematica 6. The package implements many 
programming primitives for writing and controlling parallel 
Mathematica programs, as well as high-level commands for common 
parallel operations. The new version supports Mathematica's 
latest graphics features and data sources, and allows multiple 
Mathematica 6 and Mathematica 5.2 kernels to work together to 
solve large-scale problems.

Features include:
* Efficient, adaptive load balancing
* Support for ad-hoc clustering, allowing users to take advantage 
  of sitewide Mathematica installations
* Machine-independent portable code development
* User-programmable scheduling for problem-specific adaptation
* Automatic failure recovery and reassignment of stranded 
* Speculative parallelization for nondeterministic problems
* Improved configuration of remote Mathematica kernels
* PC-based simulation and testing of parallel applications

Parallel Computing Toolkit 2.1 is available for all Mathematica 
platforms and requires Mathematica 6 for the master process. 
Remote kernel processes require Mathematica 5.2 or higher.
