Deadlock detection – finally released

I’d hoped to be able to make this post a week ago, but adding extra unit tests, performance tests and documentation took longer than expected. (Doesn’t it always?)

I’ve now refactored the previous incarnation of SyncLock in my Miscellaneous Utility Library (snappy title, huh?) and added a new type of lock which can detect deadlocks (throwing an exception instead of entering the deadlock-prone state). There’s also a usage page explaining how to use the locks, and what the performance impact is. (Well, what it is on my box, anyway.) Any further suggestions now it’s concrete are welcome, of course.
