Well, another thing: the feature set is almost identical, and it is hard to tell to which library this description belongs:

Features include:

Straightforward transformation from UML statechart to executable C++ code and vice versa. Currently, this needs to be done manually both ways but it should not be difficult to automate these tasks
Comprehensive UML semantics support:
Hierarchical (composite, nested) states
Orthogonal (concurrent) states
Entry-, exit- and transition-actions
Shallow/deep history
Event deferral
Error handling support
Maximum type-safety
Compile-time statechart validation
Support for asynchronous state machines and multi-threading
State-local storage
Generic design allowing for the customization of memory management, error handling and threading
