Boost is pleased to announce the availability of release 1.35.0.

This is a major release that includes 12 new libraries, and coincides
with an upgrade and reorganization of the web site.

The new libraries are:

* Asio: Portable networking, including sockets, timers, hostname
resolution and socket iostreams, from Chris Kohlhoff.

* Bimap: Boost.Bimap is a bidirectional maps library for C++. With
Boost.Bimap you can create associative containers in which both types
can be used as key, from Matias Capeletto.

* Circular Buffer: STL compliant container also known as ring or cyclic
buffer, from Jan Gaspar.

* Function Types: Boost.FunctionTypes provides functionality to
classify, decompose and synthesize function, function pointer, function
reference and pointer to member types. From Tobias Schwinger.

* Fusion: Library for working with tuples, including various containers,
algorithms, etc. From Joel de Guzman, Dan Marsden and Tobias Schwinger.

* GIL: Generic Image Library, from Lubomir Bourdev and Hailin Jin.

* Interprocess: Shared memory, memory mapped files, process-shared
mutexes, condition variables, containers and allocators, from Ion Gaztañaga.

* Intrusive: Intrusive containers and algorithms, from Ion Gaztañaga.

* Math/Special Functions: A wide selection of mathematical special
functions from John Maddock, Paul Bristow, Hubert Holin and Xiaogang Zhang.

* Math/Statistical Distributions: A wide selection of univariate
statistical distributions and functions that operate on them from John
Maddock and Paul Bristow.

* MPI: Message Passing Interface library, for use in distributed-memory
parallel application programming, from Douglas Gregor and Matthias Troyer.

* System: Operating system support, including the diagnostics support
that will be part of the C++0x standard library, from Beman Dawes.

Among existing libraries, Boost.Threads has been upgraded to reflect
changes made by the C++ committee in the process of including
Boost.Threads in C++0x.

Dozens of people contribute to each Boost release. Rene Rivera, Daniel
James, and John Maddock were instrumental in readying this release. It
wouldn't have happened without them.
