Boost.Atomic is an implementation of the standard atomic operations that
work in compilers without atomic support and older versions of the
standard. Both should behave similarly and should be interoperable when
"is_lock_free()" is true for both std::atomic<std::size-t> and

Yes, it should.

When do you foresee boost.interprocess

I don't know, it's in my low-priority list since users can use
Boost.Atomic or std::atomic and Interprocess' atomic operations are an
implementation detail that users should not use.
