Google-perftools reaches version 1.0
Google's google-perftools library for fast and safe memory allocation in C++ has reached version 1.0. The tools include tcmalloc, a thread caching malloc implementation dubbed "the fastest malloc we've seen", a thread friendly heap checker / profiler and a cpu profiler.
The future for google-perftools, which was launched in 2005, is to focus on improving performance for multi-threaded and multi-processor environments. This includes support for NUMA ( Non-Uniform Memory Access) architectures and improved library portability.
