Doug, it's good to see that we finally have *.*.1 releases once again,
instead of having to way 6-8 months for minor bug fixes, which are
inevitable in any *.*.0 release. I hope we will continue to have them for
future Boost releases, as well, because no matter how long the Beta period
(which is another good idea, btw) is, inevitably people wait for a final
release before testing, at which point they find the _really_ hard to find
bugs. After that last run-on sentence, I have nothing further to say :) .
