Hmm. Which feature are you looking for?
 From your post I could not deduce this easily, altough I skimmed
through the referenced discussion at c.l.c++.mod.

Altough development seems to be slow at the moment, it by no way has

Michael Glassford took up development where the original author
(B.Kempf) unfortunately left off.
If you think you have something interesting to contribute, I suggest to
try to contact him to coordinate work.

BTW.: The latest additions are in the thread_dev branch, altough it does
not even compile cleanly at the moment
I am afraid.
