Hi, I will answer on list too.

>> I would like to know if your application class is related only to console
applications or is it a generic class that could be implemented also as a

It is generic. But now we don't provide any specific support to GUI, you can
for sample use it with QT, to do this you need use "common mode".

>> I'm trying to write a cross platform header only gui library, so I wonder
if I should use it (hoping it's a header only library too) or have my own
different gui::application class.

Well, you can build a application mode that will use your GUI lib, e.g.

application::gui use application::common as model.

But we have some problem here!

1. Boost.Application is not a boost library yet! (have no support od , and it is in working progress status. Things can change!
2. Boost.Application is header only, but have some dependencies that are not
header only.

PS. If you think that this library is interesting to boost, please post on
boost.devel, that you have interest on it.

Hope this helps in your decision. If you have any other questions, let me
