All -

Today is the start of the formal review of the Variant library
by Eric Friedman and Itay Maman. The review will run until
Tuesday Feb. 25th. I will be serving as review manager.

The variant library offers a simple, type-safe solution for
manipulating an object from an inhomogeneous set of types in a
uniform manner. Whereas standard containers such as std::vector
may be thought of as "multi-value, single type," variant is
"multi-type, single value." This reduces code duplication and
enhances maintainability.

You can obtain the latest version of the library from the
boost-sandbox or from:

Please state in review comments how you reviewed the library
and whether the you think the library should be accepted into
Boost. Further guidelines for writing reviews can be found
on the website at:
