 I am working on a parallel version of CAML (the local dialect of ML).
It is an extension of a strict+lazy system (like MultiLisp), it runs
on a shared memory multiprocessor (a Sequent Balance).
 I don't know any object-oriented extension of ML. The static (compile-time)
polymorphic type-checking of ML and objects don't work well together. But
see Luca Cardelli's languages Amber and Quest.
