I've tested it on Linux (32bit/64bit), Windows will follow this evening.
Because the code is not optimized (memory allocations in context/coroutine
and fiber) it will
not be competitive with qthreads, tbb, hpx yet.
But this was not the main aim - the lib tries to integrate with other boost
lib and to support
new use-cases (for instance code writen like its synchronous counterpart
but using asynchronous operations).
