Axum Project Concluded

Thank you for all of your interest and feedback on Axum.  As described in this blog post, this project has concluded.  However, the Axum incubation effort was quite successful, as several of the concepts embodied in Axum live on in .NET 4.5: C# and VB will support their own form of asynchronous methods, while the Framework is adding support for data-flow constructs following the patterns we set up in Axum and in the C++ Concurrency Runtime (ConcRT). Moving forward, Microsoft will continue to research, incubate, and ship various technologies to help developers take advantage of parallelism, asynchrony, and concurrency within their applications.
