SourceForge has improved their release system, and it is quite a bit easier
to use than in the past. I've been updating
I become familiar with the new SourceForge interface.

The name goofs were strictly on my side. The names were wrong when I created

Thanks for the comment, however, since we always need to be on the lookout
for ways to improve our process.

Speaking of that, I notice that SourceForge has a Thumbs up/Thumbs down
rating system now.

We need to take a look at the roughly 10% of the Boost ratings that get a
"Thumbs down" to see what is bothering users.
