ConcurrentCollections.jl provides the following concurrent collections for Julia ≥ 1.7. Most of their operations are (almost) lock-free whenever appropriate.

NOTE: If you are trying to find a way to improve performance (especially the throughput) of your program, it is highly recommended to look for ways to avoid using concurrent collections first. In particular, consider applying the data-parallel pattern to dodge the difficulties in concurrent programming. For example, it is often a better idea to use task-local non-thread-safe Dicts instead of a ConcurrentDict shared across tasks. One of the most important techniques in data-parallel programming is how to merge such task-local states. For more information, see, e.g., Efficient and safe approaches to mutation in data parallelism.
