|-A fork of Scala (originally, 2.7.7) actor library that partially relies on|
|-java.util.concurrent.* classes to avoid some problems with Scala's built-in|
|-copy of various concurrent classes. Notably, it is using BlockingQueue,|
|-LinkedBlockingQueue, and TimeUnit from java.util.concurrent package instead of|
|-their private copies.|
|-In order to use this library instead of Scala actor library, import|
|-com.twitter.actors.* instead of scala.actors.*.|

|+A fork of the actor library from Scala 2.7.7 that completely removes Scala's|
|+built-in copies of `java.util.concurrent.*` classes and instead relies on|
|+their original versions in the standard Java library, without any functional|
|+The built-in copies are from an old version of the Doug Lea's public-domain|
|+code. The Java runtimes ship with versions of the code that is kept|
|+up-to-date, with bugs being fixed and code begin enhanced. Simply by upgrading|
|+to a new Java runtime, the actor runtime will benefit from any improvements to|
|+the concurrent classes.|
|+In order to use this library instead of Scala actor library, import|
|+`com.twitter.actors.*` instead of `scala.actors.*` in your code.|
