0.7.1 Release available

I have packaged a release and added it to the file releases. The documentation is available at - still incomplete but should give some useful guidance about how to use write scalable CGI or FastCGI web applications with optional session support.

The interface is quite stable at this point and the 0.7.1 point release should work on both Windows and Linux using Boost 1.42 or above. Any problems, please report them on the cgi-devel mailing list.... read more

New Docs, better code

I've uploaded a brief update of the docs, just so that they're not miles behind the code.

As usual, see the Boost SVN Sandbox for current source (or the README in the SVN repo).

Current work is being done 'blind' though (ie. without a compiler) so expect branch work to be particularly unstable. I am trying to keep the trunk stable but again, for the few days at least, that may have obvious issues.
