This concepts is already described in documentation, isn't it? Is it not
enough? "Boost.UI is a C++ User Interface Boost library that is
cross-platform, uses native system-provided widgets, has STL-like and
Boost-like API, compatible with other Boost libraries and supports
modern C++11/14/17 features."

It depends only on Boost.Config library, other libraries could be
connected for data exchange.

It supports C++03/11/14/17 levels.

As described in examples master include file is boost/ui.hpp and
boost::ui namespace are used.

I tested it with gcc 5.4.0, clang 3.8.0, msvc 9.0, 14.0.
I tried to add Boost.UI to, but this site seems broken.

There is no details in documentation because it is just first public
announce and many things could be changed.
