There have been emails about it regularly on this mailing list for the
past year and a half.
Searching this list for Unicode should give you many hits.
The docs are here, if that's what you're looking for:

My library is more powerful in a way, but is also less polished and
They also have completely different approaches in their interface, as my
library is made to be locale-agnostic and Artyom's chooses to make use
of the standard C++ locale subsystem as much as possible, even though it
is inherently broken for Unicode.
My library is a generic implementation of Unicode, while Boost.Locale is
mostly a wrapper on top of ICU, IBM's Unicode library.
They're quite different, and I like mine best of course, but I have to
admit Boost.Locale is more ready for production than Boost.Unicode for
the time being.
