Other features

These features are not on master yet but rather on different branches. (--branches --not master)


Parallel execution [work in progress, documented]

(branches: multithreaded-interpreter, multithreaded-interpreter-target-seletion)

Changes to the interpreter allowing the parallel execution of modules in a pipeline.

This is opt-in for modules and thus doesn't break modules that use thread-unsafe code. Supports threads, multiprocessing and IPython clusters.

Replaces parallelflow.

New subworkflows (design phase)
