here's my description:


A library, based on Boost.Serialization, that provides access to persistent 
objects with an interface as close as possible to accessing regular objects 
in memory.
 * object ownership concepts equivalent to the ones used by Boost.SmartPtr: 
shared, weak, scoped (and raw)
 * ACID transactions, including recovery after a crash and "Serializable" 
isolation level
 * concurrent transactions, nested transactions, distributed transactions 
 * concurrent access containers: STL containers whose nodes are implemented as 
persistent objects and can be accessed without moving the container to 
memory. Concurrent transactions modifying the container are only repeated in 
the rare cases the same container node is changed simultanisouly by 2 
 * extensible by other transactional resources, e.g. an object relational 
mapper based on the upcoming Boost.Rdb library. Multiple resources can be 
combined to one database, with distributed transactions among them.
feel free to change/correct it (not a native english speaker).
