I rather not contribute to anything that is Sony related. I’m working on Beast, which is a replacement for Boost. It comes with the juce_core module as well as the core/concurrent code from VFLib. It stands alone though, you don’t need JUCE or VFLib. It is a fork of JUCE, I renamed almost everything.
Much how JUCE is incredibly useful for building audio GUI applications and plugins, Beast is designed for interface-less high performance Internet servers. Specifically, peer to peer applications that make heavy use of cryptography such as Bitcoin or Ripple.
Currently, these types of applications are a mess because they need to include some very ugly external dependencies like Boost and OpenSSL. My hope is to wrap up all this functionality in a single library that, like JUCE, compiles cleanly without a complex build system (like autoconf) and uses a unity style / modules build.
Beast will incorporate things critical to peer to peer applications like LevelDB (key/hash database store), Google’s protocol buffers, and a lot of cryptographic primitives (courtesy of Wei Dai’s CryptoPP library).
