Hi John,

Thanks for your research.

Yes and no, there are currently no explicitly 1-dimensional adapted
features. There are (adaptors for Boost.Ranges) but they are for both
polygon (2-dim) and linestring (1-rim) and their documentation is still

So I removed the simplelist in the Boost Book XML (which is used for the
quick-reference). I merged this (this file only) to the release branch,
so hope you can try it again with this update.

I checked but this was the only empty simplelist (sub-table) in this file.

The strange thing is that this (the empty table) was also the case for
1.47 (where the PDF was generated successfully). Anyway, hope that this
will solve it.

Regards, Barend
