In fact, from the Boost.Signals FAQ:

  "2. Is Boost.Signals thread-safe?
  No. Using Boost.Signals in a multithreaded concept is very dangerous, and it
  is very likely that the results will be less than satisfying. Boost.Signals
  will support thread safety in the future."

Has there been any activity on this front?
