Zthread looks promising but there is no documentation at all.
In addition there is no mailing list.

The ZThreads library supports thread cancellation, but I haven't tried
Does anyone who have an experience with both libraries could share what
thinks of each one?

Form Boost.Thread FAQ:

Boost.Threads probably will include it, but only after we can find a
safe (and portable) mechanism for this concept.
