Colors and what not are in my (subjective) opinion done well. Really
Where I had issue, was with the "Updated Libraries" section. As I
can see, there are two pertinent issues here, namely:
1. When I first looked here ("Updated Libraries"), the first thing I
asked myself was why the text was column-ated (is that a word?) to
the left, and not running across the entire page width; as it might
This is really not so important, especially if the next point is
taken to task...
2. Take for example the "Graph Library" in the "Updated Libraries"
section: a whole series of points are made sumarizing much of
the capability, but in its condensed form, makes very hard to
distinguish each point.
The solution here as I see it is either bullet points of some
description (which is not the best of options to be honest), or
alternatively, and much better, is a little, and just a little
space between each of the summary points made.
Other than that, I thank you and Rene on a job well done. -It really
looks great and does well in projecting a professional image of Boost.
