Hi Everyone!

So, I've been busy the past few hours doing a final push to get 0.7
out the door so that starting tomorrow I can start working on the 0.8
branch to improve the server-side HTTP implementation. Now, it's
official, 0.7 is out the door and is ready for prime-time. ;-)

In case you'd like to try it out, it's header only and you can
download the 0.7 release from:

This has numerous improvements and enhancements over the 0.6 version,
and has a more robust definition of the concepts included in the
library. Now anybody can start extending cpp-netlib with their own
protocol implementations using the common message type. If you want
your work to integrate cleanly with the project, you can go ahead and
fork my repository (as the project's "benevolent dictator for life")
and submit pull requests in case you want to get your
implementation/fixes/extensions into the main library distribution.

As earlier stated, 0.8 will be a server-side focused development
effort which will include a lot of cool things not just an improved
HTTP server interface. If you'd like to discuss the effort or join the
development, please feel free to send email to either the Boost
Developer mailing list (because this library will be submitted for
review and inclusion in Boost around December 2010) or the cpp-netlib
developers mailing list.

Thanks to everyone who's expressed interest, and those who have
offered suggestions on the improvements to be made to the library.

I hope everyone had a great weekend too!
