Subject: [boost] Pre-build MSVC Boost binaries

Over the last year, I've set up a small SourceForge "WinBin" project [1]
for distributing Microsoft Windows binaries for Boost (and some other
projects). The repository is sorted by Boost version, compiler version and
shared vs. static linking. Each file archive contains pre-build boost in
debug/release for both 32/64-bit, following a include/lib[64]/bin[64]
folder structure.

There also seems to be some other sources for pre-built boost around (e.g. and However, these do not seem to provide boost
built for both static and shared linking. Also, they do not appear to
adhere to the "quasi standard" include/lib[64]/bin[64] folder naming
convention used by many libraries. Finally, they seem to lack information
on which version of python (and possibly other 3rd party SW) they are
compiled against. Therefore, I decided to set up my own boost-binaries

Please let me know if you might be interested in either improving the
"WinBin" project, or somehow joining forces to merge the various sources of
Boost binaries into a single, more "authoritative" repository. I would be
more than happy to shut WinBin down if "similar enough" binaries can be
downloaded elsewhere.

Thanks in advance,
Fredrik Orderud
