Subject: [Boost-users] Library for dealing with Unicode

Hi all,

I am looking for a library to help deal with locale in a "cross-platform" manner -- something like iconv but for cross-platform. After some searching, I've come across Boost.Locale, but it looks like it hasn't been released yet. Does anyone know when it will be accepted? Or, is there an alternative I can use?
