De facto library standards
We're currently reviewing which 3rd party 'free' libraries we use with the aim to 'standarise' on what are considered the de-facto standards for use with c++. There are many 'free' libraries available for such things as databases, graphics, xml etc etc. Which would be currently considered 'de facto' standard libraries for cross-platform development with c++?
Any comments/thoughts would be appreciated to feed into our review.
