I know :) I added std::thread as a working example, sorry for confusion.

Now I'm using std::thread, but before that I tried to use cxx::thread, 
and I thought that you may want to know that is not working anymore ;-). 
cxx::thread (also std::thread) is more convenient for c++ apps.

std::thread works just fine for me :) !
