How to handle CEGUI in multi thread

For help with anything that CEGUI doesn't offer straight out-of-the-box, e.g.:
- Implementation of new features, such as new Core classes, widgets, WindowRenderers, etc. ...
- Modification of any existing features for specific purposes
- Integration of CEGUI in new engines or frameworks and writing of new plugins (Renderer, Parser, ...) or modules

You have to use some sort of a synchronisation scheme between threads as CEGUI isn't thread safe.

Most likely a queue that gets locked before each frame and all actions from it are performed in the CEGUI thread, then CEGUI gets rendered.

Google should get you plenty of material for this.
