Hi all,

after Wave was accepted into Boost I've fixed all of the things mentioned
during the review and reported afterwards by different people (thanks a lot
for all the comments and help I've got!).

Here are the main points:

- I've fixed all the problems reported during the review and tried to
incorporate all of the remarks done there as well.

- The first version of a test suite was implemented and is integrated into
the Boost regression process. This test suite currently consists out of more
than 100 different unit tests from 2 categories:
  . Systematic testing of all aspects of the preprocessor as described in
the Standard
  . Set of regression tests collected during the development of Wave over th
elast couple of years.
The test system is very flexible and is easy to extend. In the future I'll
add even more unit tests to check even more details.
Since it was asked here before: the test suite currently takes a couple of
seconds to execute.

The integration of Wave into the regression test procedure revealed some
portability issues which I'm currently trying to resolve.

- A new sample lexed_tokens was added. It shows how to use one of the C++
lexers included with the library only (without using the C++ preprocessing

For the details see the Changlog file here:

Overall, I think Boost.Wave is ready for prime time now and can be included
into the next Boost release.

Regards Hartmut
