Draft zip/tarballs for the 1.32 release are available from the
These are NOT the tarballs that will be released; rather, they are
the first probe aiming to uncover whatever problems we are still
unaware of (including problems with archives preparation), or, if
there are none, to confirm that pending a few issues below, we are
finally ready to release.
For your convenience, the unpacked contents is also available online
at http://www.meta-comm.com/engineering/boost/1_32_0_draft/. You
can consider this to be a draft version of post-1.32 Boost website.
The following is a list of known issues present in the tarballs
which grant them their draft status:
1) A small number of unmarked test failures (but no regressions).
2) A small number of broken links as follows:
doc/html/date_time/doxy.html: broken link: ../../../boost/date_time/dst_transition_day_generators.hpp, broken link:
doc/html/date_time/posix_time.html: broken link: ../../../libs/date_time/doc/time_duration_inherit.png
doc/html/libraries.html: broken link: ../boost.pdf
libs/libraries.htm: broken link: ../boost.docbook, broken link: ../boost.fo, broken link: ../boost.pdf
libs/numeric/conversion/doc/converter.html: broken link: udt_support.html
libs/numeric/conversion/doc/converter_policies.html: broken link: udt_support.html
3) No documentation in PDF format ("boost.pdf"), due to some build
issues (I'll post separate email on this).
4) Placeholder pages in place of the revoked pre-1.32 MPL
If you encounter any issues that are not in the above list, please
report them here!
To run regression tests on the archives, you need to:
1) Grab the archive for your platform from one of the above locations.
2) Grab the latest "regression.py" from
3) Put the archive and "regression.py" in the same directory and invoke
the latter with the following command line:
python regression.py --local=<archive name> --runner=<your runner id>
--toolsets=<your toolsets> [<more options as needed>]
python regression.py --local=boost_1_32_0.zip --runner=metacomm
The results will be automatically uploaded to
Finally, thanks in advance to everybody who will be looking at this!
