Beast: a new HTTP library

There's a new open source library called Beast that implements HTTP
and WebSocket protocols. Its written in C++ 11, uses only Boost.Asio,
and compiles on gcc, clang, and Visual Studio. I guess you could
consider it a competitor to libcurl:

although, the scope of Beast is that it is strictly a low-level
library upon which other abstractions may be build (I consider libcurl
to be a high level library).

You can find Beast here:
