I'm surprised that a full-blown version history file wasn't added a long
time ago. I raided the CVS history of the main "index.htm" file for the
details. Any ancient-timers know the history of 1.11.0 and earlier?
Pretend that the file is at 'BOOST_ROOT/more/version_history.html'.
The header looks funny; I was wondering how to replicate the current look by
mutating what's given with CSS. (I was thinking of the headers seen at
I processed what I wrote through HTML-Tidy, adding indentation and line
wrap. I kept getting weird spacing with the function descriptions at the
Spirit section of 1.30.1 and the Lambda block-quote at 1.28.0. I
worked-around the problem by undoing the line-breaks Tidy added at those
points. The problem is in the CSS file:
This last (non-brace) line says that multiple white-space characters are
_not_ collapsed into a single space. This lets CODE acts as an in-line
variant of PRE, but it violates what CODE usually does! I need the default
space-collapsing behavior of CODE. If no one can give me a justification
for that attribute, I'm going to erase it.
Even if you can justify it, do this instead:
Then call it like so:
<p>Blah blah, please <code class="my_special">keep all of my
spaces</code> blah blah.</p>
That way people who need the default space-collapsing attribute of CODE
(like me) don't get screwed.
