Good catch on Boost.Fit. I hadn't noticed it's C++ 11 only.

Do you have a link to Boost.Tick, I cannot find it with Google?

I won't rule out covering C++ 14 only libraries. However, right now
as there is only one fully featured C++ 14 compiler I would suggest
that "Boost readiness" must be low for C++ 14 only libraries as they
cannot have been as well tested as libraries which work on all three
of the major compilers.

As much as everyone finds porting modern C++ to MSVC a pain, I still
think it's good for you as an engineer and it's good for your code.

I hope to return to working on Expected sometime after Christmas, and
to integrate it with non-allocating future-promise along the
constexpr resumable monadic continuations design I outlined on this
list some weeks ago.

Sorry about the lack of progress Vicente. Unfortunately I am consumed
with higher priority items right now (BindLib, then KernelAlloc) as
these are immediate showstoppers for my work colleagues. I do
appreciate the inconvenience for you however.

BTW Vicente we may need to ponder how to "do" submodules for Thread.
Do we simply add git submodules wherever we feel like? Do we
implement some form of module organisation e.g. all submodules live
in a special directory? How does the build system detect submodules,
and how should config.hpp reflect them? These are all good questions
if Thread is going to gain a lot of submodular components as
currently seems inevitable - even my non-allocating future promise
will on its own drag in three separate git submodules currently.
