Unfortunately, detailed specification and implementations of std::thread
won't appear until after TR2 is released, which means that there is not
much to be done at this point to write Boost.Thread as a wrapper for
One can check this proposal for a TR2 threading library if interested:
(important notes on IV.C, Comparison with the Boost.Thread approach)
However, I believe that this idea should be dropped at the moment since
there isn't sufficient information about the upcoming C++1x threading
library. Maybe it will be more appropriate for the next year's GSoC ;)
But maybe I'm just wrong and misinformed.

Yours faithfully,



I was not refering to the Kevlin Henney proposal, but the one it is already accepted in N3092

The chapter include the complete proposal. You can take a look at chapter 30. In N2661 - A Foundation to Sleep On you can see some of the changes needed.

Anyway, I think that it will be also a good idea for GSoC to implementing the Kevlin Henney proposal, even if the proposal is yet open. I remember that there was an implementation of this before futures had been included in C++0x.
