Boost release 1.25.0 is available at

William Kempf.

improved the documentation, from Michael Stevens and Jens Maurer.

Additionally, new compilers and platforms have been added to the status

run complex Thread library regression tests, for example.

A new boost-user mailing list is about to go public, and a Boost Wiki is
available for experimentation. See
