A couple more summaries are directly derivable from the CVS log (although
the library authors are welcome to provide any corrections!):
* Boost.Optional: new fix for std::swap (for gcc >= 3.3), fix a
couple of typos in the documentation
* Boost.Format: feed_args.hpp, format_class.hpp,
msvc_disambiguater.hpp: merged MSVC7.1 fixes from the main trunk
* Boost.Function: doc/tutorial.xml: fix a typo in the example code,
Below are the remaining changes that need to be commented on:
* boost/config/: compiler/comeau.hpp, compiler/intel.hpp,
select_stdlib_config.hpp, platform/hpux.hpp, platform/irix.hpp,
platform/linux.hpp, platform/solaris.hpp, platform/win32.hpp,
stdlib/dinkumware.hpp, stdlib/libcomo.hpp, stdlib/stlport.hpp:
Selectively merged changes in the main trunk into the branch for
* tools/build/intel-linux-tools.jam: need -lrt, always
