c++.stlsoft - STLSoft 1.9.1 final release: final issues before we go ...

Unless anyone's got anything else to request/fix, I'm considering just one
more thing before the final release.

That last thing is to work out whether explicit_cast can be added to
winstl::reg_value and comstl::variant, which, if it works, would be a pretty
nice way of getting different types out of a variant-like type. (Sorry,
ClŠudio. Although I've started scoped_method, and it looks like it'll do all
the things we want, it's going to have to wait for 1.10. FWIW, once I've got
over the hurdle of 1.9.1, I expect to be able to do minor releases, i.e.
1.10, 1.11, etc. in matters of a month or so, rather than the 1.75 yrs(!)
it's taken from 1.8.9 to 1.9.1 <g>)

Other than that, all that's left is documentation and website. I've pretty
much decided that most of the docs will have to wait for 1.9.2, but I would
like some feedback from y'all on what you'd like to see on the website.

Ideally, I'd like to keep it as simple and static as possible, but obviously
interest and helpfulness trump simple and static. So, please let me know.
(If anyone wants to submit website content, that'd be extra-specially nice.)

Two things I've definitely thought of are areas of the site that deal with
(i) concepts/patterns/principles used by STLSoft, e.g. something like
stlsoft.org/concepts/shims.html (don't click on that: it doesn't exist
yet!), and (ii) tutorials *not* written in Doxygen (but that are linked from
the Doxygenated documentation). I'm hoping to interest some of you users in
writing the latter ...


Cheers
