For the past month or so I've been working on a concurrency library which
brings active types, atomic types, and parallel loop constructs and
algorithms to C++. I am familiar with some of the concurrency projects
already underway, though I'm sure my library would be able to coexist.
I plan on proposing through SoC sometime later this week.

Over the past two days I've also begun writing up some documentation using
QuickBook to give a general idea as to the design of the
library. Though I do have a lot of features already implemented, there
is still a very large amount of work to be done prior to completion.
Some feedback before I make the formal
proposal would be nice, and it'd also be great to see if anyone is
interested. Keep in mind that the documentation is only a rough outing and
so there are a few unconnected links, but I do include a brief introduction
and some basic usage examples including code snippets. The library is
reference to as Surge.Act as that is the namespace I use for my personal
libraries, though it will of course be changed to Boost.Act if it were to be

For those familiar with the concept of futures and are confused as to why
they are not mentioned, I will be adding all of that information to the
rationale over the upcoming few days. I also apologize for not having better
code examples.
