Mirko's ThreadWeaver library, based on Qt4. It's also task-based and makes pervasive multithreading incredibly easy. I use it everywhere in Krita.

If I understand correctly TBB also provides a STL-like library which is multi-threading "friendly/compatible", whereas ThreadWeaver is just a "threaded batch scheduler".

So they're not really the same thing..
