Can you recommend any free, convenient and faster than Boost DateTime library for operations on dates (time is unnecessary)?

Does Boost date not satisfy your requirements?

Is C++ fast enough?I have use Boost date a bit, and it did what I wanted at the time.But you have some precise issues with this library?

I thought it was a pun, and so I reciprocated (I'm using C++11 and up) :-)Like I said, my issue is speed. Date calculations are not a significant part of the program logic, but they take a large fraction of the total execution time, hence my candidate for optimisation...
