There are 3 main direction to look:
1. How framework help to write test cases
2. How framework help to manage test cases
3. How framework help to run test cases
Here is situation as to last time I checked:
1. CppUnit basically incomparable in first one. It only provide basic checks
and does not have facility like execution monitor
2. Boost.Test slightly better in managing test cases (it's more flexible)
3. CppUnit still better as to test running, mostly due to available GUIs.
But, of course, it's only my opinion ;)))
