And I just merged the changes to make 1.35 appear into the live site.

I still get the old site :-( But my ISP has always been slow in getting
DNS changes. I checked on the web server itself and it says:
-bash-3.00$ host boost.org
boost.org has address 22.214.171.124
-bash-3.00$ host www.boost.org
www.boost.org is an alias for vhost.sourceforge.net.
vhost.sourceforge.net has address 126.96.36.199
So yes, there's no A record for www.boost.com, as it's an alias record.
