Boost.Http and Beast.HTTP joining forces
The newest update to the Boost.Http is that I had a long meeting with Vinnie Falco about a possible collaboration and a few changes are going to happen.
What this means:
- A lot of work making changes so projects can hopefully be merged in the future.
- API will break again.
- The thing I wasn’t caring about, “HTTP/1.1 oriented interface”, will be provided on a higher-level than simply an HTTP parser. This is what Beast.HTTP already provides.
- Beast.HTTP already provides WebSocket support and HTTP client support.
- We’ll be using a new mailing list to coordinate further development and I invite you to join the mailing list if you’re interested in the future of any of these libraries or HTTP APIs in general.
