The Boost formal review of Zach Laine's Unicode library, Text,
commences on June 11th and concludes June 20th. We welcome the
participation of Boost developers and users, and the C++ community.


    This library includes three layers:
    - The string layer, a set of types that constitute "a better std::string"
    - The Unicode layer, consisting of the Unicode algorithms and data
    - The text layer, a set of types like the string layer types, but
providing transparent Unicode support


Text requires C++14 or higher, and supports GCC 5+, Clang 3.6+, and MSVC 2017.

Zach initially presented the library at C++Now in 2018. He also
intends to standardize a library solution for Unicode based on this


Try the library today, and please consider submitting a review, or
even contributing to the discussion next week.
