Subject: [boost] [gil] Status of gil:: extension:: io

Hi all,

I noticed that a major update to gil's io extension was accepted into
boost in 2011[1].

It disappeared from its own development repository in 2013[2].

It isn't present in boost 1.55[3].

It is present in boost's subversion trunk[4].

There's currently no mention of it in the release notice for boost 1.56[5].

Am I right to say that its presence in boost trunk means that it
/will/ be included in boost 1.56, it just needs to be added to the
documentation? If so, then great! Is there anything which needs to be
fixed before it's ready to ship? I didn't see anything obvious when I
searched this list's archives for “[gil]”.

Thanks in particular to Christian, everybody else that worked on the
io_new extension, and those that reviewed it! It's very useful to me,
and I'm looking forward to its integration into boost so I don't have
to add it myself from boost trunk :)

(this is the “old” io extension)
[4] (and
this is the “new” one)
