As always, we need experienced review managers. Please take a look at
the list of libraries in need of managers and check out their
descriptions. In general review managers are active boost
participants, including library contributors, infrastructure
contributors, and other mailing list participants with a substantial
track record of constructive participation. If you can serve as review
manager for any of them, email Ron Garcia or John Phillips, "rxg at cs
dot ubc dot ca" and "johnphillipsithica at gmail dot com" respectively.
We are also suffering from a lack of reviewers. While we all
understand time pressures and the need to complete paying work, the
strength of Boost is based on the detailed and informed reviews
submitted by you. If you are interested in reviewing a library but
won't have time during the review period, you can always prepare your
review ahead of time. No rule says you can only work on a review
during the review period.
A link to this report will be posted to www.boost.org. If you would
like us to make any modifications or additions to this report, please
email Ron or John.
The review schedule is an unordered list of the libraries awaiting
review. As such, any library on the schedule can be reviewed once the
developer is ready, a review manager has been secured, and
the manager, developer, and wizards agree on a date
to schedule the review.
Join is an asynchronous, message based C++ concurrency
library based on join calculus. It is applicable both to
multi-threaded applications and to the orchestration of asynchronous,
event-based applications. It follows Comega's design and
implementation and builds with Boost facilities. It provides a high
level concurrency API with asynchronous methods, synchronous methods,
and chords which are "join-patterns" defining the synchronization,
asynchrony, and concurrency.

:Description: The Singularity Design Pattern allows you to restrict
any class to a single instance. Unlike the infamous Singleton,
Singularity gives you direct control over the lifetime of the object,
does not require you to grant global access to the object, nor does it
limit you to the default constructor for that object.
The library is an extension of the std::complex class addressing two issues:
1. The standard does not guaranty the behaviour of the complex class if
instantiated with types other than float/double/long double.
2. Some calculation where pure imaginary numbers (i.e. multiples of
sqrt(-1)) appear are unnecessarily slowed down due to the lack of
support for these numbers. The code I submit contains two
interleaved classes boost::complex and boost::imaginary which can
be instantiated with any type T provided T overloads the usual
arithmetic operators and some basic (real) mathematical functions
depending on which complex function will be used. It is thus an
extended version of Thorsten Ottosen's n1869 proposal

This project adds some features of the Oven Range Library to Boost.Range.
- Additional Range Adaptors (taken, taken_while, dropped,
dropped_while, elements, elements_key, memoized, outdirected)
- Extensions for using Lambda (regular function, regular operator)
- Infinite Range (iteration function)
- and additional range utilities.
This library makes cross platform Unicode aware programming easier.
It provides an implementation of standard C and C++ library functions,
such that their inputs are UTF-8 aware on Windows without requiring to
use Wide API.
The proposed library [stl_ext_adv] offers augmented array based B+ trees
and STL containers that support the interfaces of the C++03 sequences
and associative containers. The library offers a number of extensions
and performance improvements that are not available in
C++03 and C++11 standard containers.

This library is an implementation of a binary red-black counter tree. This
tree have an additional counter in each leaf. This permit the access to the
elements by the position, like in a vector. It is a random access container
with random access iterators.
This kind of trees have an additional counter in each leaf. This
permit the access to the elements by the position, like in a
vector. It is a random access container with random access iterators.
With unordered information we have a vector with the same speed
inserting and deleting in any position (O(log N)). With ordered
information, we have the classes set, multiset, map and multimap, with
identical interface than the STL classes, with the plus of access to
the elements by position, like in a vector. The iterators are random
access , and you can subtract them.
The suballocator is a layer between the allocator and the data
structures, compatible with any allocator with the STL definition. The
suballocator replace to the allocator in the allocation of equal size
elements. It provides speed, return the unused memory and decrease the
memory used by the program and improve the cache performance due to
the data locality improvement ( 30% of improvement of speed respect
the std::allocator with GCC 4.7)
Boost.Process is a library to manage system processes. It can be used to:
* create child processes
* setup streams for child processes
* communicate with child processes through streams (synchronously or
* wait for processes to exit (synchronously or asynchronously)
* terminate processes
Application uses behaviours modeled using 'aspects' concept
proposed by 'Vicente J. Botet Escriba', that allow easy extension and
customization of library components. The application modes uses these
components internally to achieve the user desirable behaviours.
Application provide many useful ready-to-use features, e.g:
* Run application as Windows Service;
* Run application as UNIX/POSIX Daemon;
* Plugin extension system;
* Process(executable) Single instance Instantiation support;
* Application SIGNAL/Callbacks customization;
* Windows Service Setup feature;
* And many others.

:Download: https://github.com/erikerlandson/algorithm/tree/edit_distance/sequence :Description:
The edit distance is the length of the shortest (or least-cost) edit
script from one sequence to another, where an edit script is defined
as a sequence of insertion, deletion and (optionally) substitution
operations. The function implementing the edit distance is named
edit_distance. This function will return the edit distance between two
sequences, where sequences may be any valid range object supporting
forward iteration. The edit_distance function will also, if
requested, return the edit script.

Boost.Mixin is a library that allows the composition and
modifications of polymorphic types at run time. Types and objects
are constructed out of building blocks called mixins.
The library uses the type boost::mixin::object as a placeholder,
whose instances can be extended with existing classes (mixins), thus
providing a particular instance with the functionality of all those
types. Accessing the newly formed type's interface is made through
messages: stand-alone functions generated by the library, which can
be thought of as methods.
This is given while also having full abstraction between the
interface and the definition of types.
An existing feature in another language similar to Boost.Mixin and
also an inspiration for the library are the mixins in Ruby. The
library also has similarities with the pattern
