I have no recollection of receiving one.

To be fair, Java does support concurrency at the 
language level. It just happens to do it poorly.

I would also suggest that OCaml does it, at least 
through standard libraries. The libraries basically
map the POSIX thread model, but there are VM-level
threads, which means that OCaml programs can de-
couple themselves from the OS thread support.
