You can find more information on the speaker's site:

RFC #1 for Perl 6 was for it to have integrated threading support from the start. We know this didn't happen.

This talk sheds some light on why it's so difficult to get working threading support and why the existing threading support has been removed from Parrot. It will also present our new approach which may finally bring us into a multi-threaded world.
