I'm part of a team that's evaluating various C++ libraries for use on a new project. None of us have used POCO before, but we've read through much of the documentation and like what we see very much. At the same time, we'd like to start using some core C++11 features, including the new threading and synchronization primitives, in order to keep our skills up to date. We're wondering, has anyone experienced problems mixing the two (e.g. thread-safe/thread-aware POCO classes like NotificationQueue and ThreadLocal with C++11 thread management)? Are we crazy for considering such a Frankenstein? Our initial implementation will be on Windows (VS2013) and eventually be ported to Linux and OSX, if that's any help.
I apologize if a question like this has already been asked and answered. This forum engine doesn't seem to like the search term "C++11".
