Subject: [boost] Referencing Boost.Iostreams in the documentation of a non-boost library

Boost Experts,

I am a fan of Boost.Iostreams and I am referencing them several times in
the documentation of a little library that I wrote and posted on Google
Code under "New BSD license" (

Do I need to provide a full URL or copyright information or anything else
to make such reference to Boost.Iostreams legally sound? Or shall I just
switch to use Boost Software License instead to keep it simple?
