Hi all,

after the discussion in January this year I took over maintenance of

First goal: Integrate all changes and requests that came up during
review and as Github Issues including the docs.
Second goal: Get extensive CI running with coverage especially on
Windows (it is a mainly Windows library)
Third goal: Iron out bugs, performance issues and incompatibilities.

Of great help was my fork I prepared (and announced here) earlier but it
was still an incredible amount of work.

I can now say I'm done!

I invite everyone to test it, (re-)review the code or check the docu for
anything that's missing:

One of the bigger changes was to make the library "less header-only" (it
already required compilation on Windows when using iostreams). This was
due to some required functions being considered extensions by e.g.
MinGW/Cygwin and hence failing for consumers build with `-std=c++98` (or
similar). This now works!

Final note for those interested: The standalone (non-Boost) version and
converter will be available later.

Happy poking!
