Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about finishing a library that was proposed a couple of
years ago. It was pretty far along, and there is documentation available
in the sandbox (somewhat outdated):

It is a library with the goal of storing C++ objects on disk, with an
interface that is as close as possible to accessing regular C++ objects
in memory. A very simple example could look like this:

shared_loc<person> p=...;
   transaction tx;

It is based on Boost.Serialization, but automatically maintains a
consistent state on disk (ACID transactions), which can be updated

Part of its code was moved to a library named Transact to work alongside
other transactional resources (like memory) and is available in the sandbox:

I'd like to know whether the boost community is still interested in such
a library, and I suppose there are quite a few new people here so your
comments are welcome as well.

Thank You!
