I see that the single Proposed library is Thread, but from n2516 the thread library has been adopted.
"The review committee, created by Motion 14 at the Kona meeting, approved, by a vote of 4 to 2, the inclusion of the threads API proposal as revised by the editing committee ( N2497) for inclusion of the working paper. "

Which are the other Boost libraries that are proposed but not for accepted yet? Filesystem? Optional? Range? Any? numeric_cast? Lexical Conversion, ShMem (Interprocess), Signals?
