Hello all,

David told me that the following announcement might be of interest in
the Boost community, so here it goes ;-)

I am happy to announce that POCO (the C++ Portable Components) is now
under the Boost license, which makes it free for both open source and
commercial use.

Also, the new POCO Community Website is now online at http://
This is the place to meet the POCO developers and to discuss all
things POCO.
Contributors are welcome!

About POCO:
POCO, the C++ Portable Components, is a collection of open source
class libraries that simplify and accelerate the development of
network-centric, portable applications in C++. The libraries
integrate perfectly with the C++ Standard Library and fill many of
the functional gaps left open by it. Their modular and efficient
design and implementation makes the C++ Portable Components extremely
well suited for embedded development, an area where the C++
programming language is becoming increasingly popular, due to its
suitability for both low-level (device I/O, interrupt handlers, etc.)
and high-level object-oriented development.

Hope to meet you there,
