Subject: [boost] Review Request: future library (Gaskill version)
>I wanted to formally request a review of my Futures library.
> Latest Version: http://braddock.com/~braddock/future/
> The library has matured greatly over the past year. It has been heavily
> used as a key component in a mid-sized commercial
> application on both Linux and Windows. Extensive unit tests and (just
> now) documentation have been written - in fact there are more than twice
> as many lines of test code and documentation than are in the library
> The library incorporates many ideas from this list, from other prospective
> submissions, other languages, and from academic papers.
> The library does not currently use jamfiles or boostdoc (I tried I really
> did). It is a header-only library. The documentation is currently
> straight HTML, and should be very easy to translate to boostdoc if the
> submission looks good.
> NOTE - to avoid confusion, note that there is an older 2005 boost.future
> candidate in the vault by Thorsten Schuett that is not related to mine
> (although it was studied early on).
