About 14 months ago I posted the same thing. There was significant work
that needed to be done to Boost.Text (the proposed library), and I was a
bit burned out.

Now I've managed to make the necessary changes, and I feel the library is
ready for review, if there is interest.

This library, in part, is something I want to standardize.

It started as a better string library for namespace "std2", with minimal
Unicode support. Though "std2" will almost certainly never happen now,
those string types are still in there, and the library has grown to also
include all the Unicode features most users will ever need.

Online docs:

If you care about portable Unicode support, or even addressing the
embarrassment of being the only major production language with next to no
Unicode support, please have a look and provide feedback.

I gave a talk about this at C++Now in May 2018, and now it's a bit out of
date, as the library was not then finished. It's three hours, so, y'know,
maybe skip it. For completeness' sake:
