Subject: [Boost-users] Using the (new) C++ standard library in boost::dll
From: Benjamin Buch (benni.buch_at_[hidden])

The boost::dll depends on 4 different boost-libraries which all have
counterparts in the C++17 standard library. Worse, two of them (system &
filesystem) are not header-only libraries, so you need to link against
these libraries.

Is it possible and planned to use the standard library counterparts as plug
in replacement for these boost dependencies in a future release? In my
opinion this would improve the usability massively, especially when you
already use this counterparts in the rest of your program.

Best regards,
