To keep the size of down, only the library names are given. The header
names are only given for the headers in boost-root/boost.
See below for how to get more detail.

See trunk/tools/release/diff_trunk_release.bat for a little Windows
command line tool:
if not %1$==$ goto usage_ok
echo Usage: diff_trunk_release library-name
svn diff http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/branches/release/boost/%1
svn diff http://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/branches/release/libs/%1
Sorry, but I haven't had time to create a bash version.
If you run it like this:
D:\boost\trunk\tools\release>diff_trunk_release parameter | grep
"Index: " | sed 's/Index: //'
If you run "diff_trunk_release parameter", you will get an actual diff
of the differences.
I've run it for each of the four libraries you mentioned, and all appear
to have unmerged changes. Of course I have no way of knowing if these
should go in 1.36.0 or be held for 1.37.0.
