The formal review of Boost.DLL library by Antony Polukhin is nearing the end of the first week.
As of today, over 100 people read through the library's tutorial, suggesting quite some interest.
However, no reviews were submitted yet. Please take the time to post your thoughts - even if you
don't have time to do a full review, or try the library, comments on design and interfaces are
still very valuable.

The summary of the library features and review checklists are reproduced below.

Boost.DLL is a C++98 library for comfortable work with DLL and DSO. Library
provides a portable across platforms way to:

    - load libraries at runtime
    - import and export any native functions and variables
    - make alias names for C++ mangled functions and symbols
    - query libraries/objects and executables for sections and exported
    - self loading and self querying
    - getting program and module location by exported symbol

The documentation can be found at:
