Hi all,

pqs_3_0_5 is now available in the "Physical Quantities Units" directory in the
boost vault. pqs_3_0_5 hs been formally tested (including <libs/pqs/ test> and
<libs/pqs/examples> ) on VC7.1, VC8, gcc3.2, gcc4.01.

I hope to request a formal review of pqs shortly. All comments welcome

The major change in pqs_3_0_5 is that first draft documentation has been added.
Below is a copy of the index in the pqs_3_0_5 documentation.

Definition of terms
t1_quantity - Quick overview of features and useage
t1_quantity - Macros
t1_quantity - Concepts
t1_quantity - Class definition
t1_quantity - Functions and operations
t1_quantity - Associated types **
Predefined t1_quantities included in pqs
Adding new predefined t1_quantities **
Configuring pqs **

  ( **Section is are very incomplete in pqs_3_0_5)

ToDo list for pqs_3_0_6-----------

Ful quota of constants and constants documentation needs to be added.

Code and documentation for angles need to be added. Should angles be in
boost::math namespace ?

A full inventory of pre-defined quantities as laid out in Appendix B.8 and B.9
of NIST Guide for the Use of the International System of Units(SI). pqs_3_0_5
has a (reasonably sized) sample selection of these but not all.

Typeof registration needs to be sorted according to whatever is decided.
