The following is a breakdown of libraries I (Jeff Garland) would like to see as a compliment to the current C++ standard. Obviously not all of these will be part of the standard, but some should be and others might be part of boost. The afternoon discussion topic at OOPSLA will be brainstroming what's missing from this, what's wrong with it, and which of these things are the most important.
If you would like a pdf version of the diagram you can get it here: [cpp_libraries.pdf]
