Sorry if someone has already asked this but will AGK's functions be thread-safe? It's just that that's been an issue with DBP and DarkGDK. And as the ipad 2 is dual core now, others are bound to follow suit.

Anything high-end released now without dual core is looked at with skepticism. Although right now I suspect a high clock single CPU is probably the best but to be future prof most buy dual core, at least when it comes to Android. We are right in the middle of the shift to dual core for high-end now.

Exactly what I was thinking which is why I'm keen to know whether AppGameKit commands are going to be thread safe. We will need to be able to use multi-threading to get the best performance which, on portable devices, is still going to be very important. I was assuming that tier one, being like DBP, would not support this but I suppose I'm looking at tier two. Will we be able to use C++ threading with AppGameKit?
