Axum is an incubation project in Microsoft’s Parallel Computing Team. A .Net programming language based on asynchronous agents, isolation, and message-passing, Axum allows developers to partition their applications into isolated components that communicate with each other via message passing and access shared state in a disciplined way.

Axum has not yet been released by Microsoft but it is nearing its first public beta. Please check out Axum team blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/maestroteam.
