This has really taken me by surprise. Was I supposed to know that 1.59
was going to be released shortly without so much as a single
announcement on this mailing list ? In other words is it up to Boost
developers to know when the timelines for each release would take place ?

I never even got VMD to be regression tested on 'master' yet and I
wanted to add it to the 1.59 release. Furthermore a number of 'develop'
fixs in preprocessor and other libraries for which I have write access
had never been merged to 'master' yet for testing. I guess none of these
things will make it to Boost 1.59. I do apologize that I was not aware I
should have been getting these fixes merged into 'master' and tested for
the next release. None of the fixes are 'critical' but I definitely
wanted to get some of them into 1.59.
