I am happy to announce the release of a prototype futures library for C++ based on N2561. Packaged as a single header file released under the Boost Software License it needs to be compiled against the Boost Subversion Trunk, as it uses the Boost Exception library, which is not available in an official boost release.
Sample usage can be seen in the test harness. There is one feature missing, which is the support for alternative allocators. I intend to add such support in due course.
Please download this prototype, put it through its paces, and let me know what you think.
