    4141Boost would benefit from porting the many libraries from C++98/03 to C++11. Proposals for these projects should carefully consider the impact of new language features on the target library. Features like variadic templates, decltype, auto, uniform initialization, forwarding, move semantics, and the new Standard Library features may have a significant impact on the design of the new library.

     43=== Boost.Process: A new draft ===
     44We've been working on several Boost.Process drafts since 2006. At BoostCon 2011 Jeff and I gave a presentation on the latest status of Boost.Process. We set the path for a future version, and Jeff checked in an initial version at https://github.com/JeffFlinn/boost-process. I was busy after BoostCon working on a Boost.Asio extension to wait asynchronously for Windows processes. This Boost.Asio extension shipped with Boost 1.49.0 and is known as boost::asio::windows::object_handle (a solution within Boost.Process to wait asynchronously on Windows was controversial; it's now out of Boost.Process and fits much better into Boost.Asio). Now it's time to go back to Boost.Process. I (Boris Schaeling, boris @ highscore.de) mentored a student already in 2010 who worked with me on Boost.Process 0.4. Now we could give it another try (and maybe make another step closer to version 1.0? :).
