Thanks Jeff, and thanks everybody for participating in the
review. The review process has been very helpful in contributing
ideas to make the library better.

The current plan is for the next version to include breaking
interface changes arising from the review, plus some features on
which I would like to get more feedback (such as custom memory
allocation and dual IPv4/6 support). At that time, in addition
to the changelog, I will publish a list of review changes that
are yet to be made.


P.S. did the review result get posted to the boost-users list?
