Subject: [boost] ABI navigator for Boost libraries

I'd like to present a new project called "ABI Navigator" to search for binary symbols (functions, methods, global data, etc.) in the Boost and other open-source libraries: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator
The project allows to find out in which versions of the library and in which particular objects of the library some symbol is defined, added or removed. The project is based on the ABI report for Boost: https://abi-laboratory.pro/tracker/timeline/boost/
1. symbol "boost::system::system_category()" from libboost_system.so: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator&selected=_ZN5boost6system15system_categoryEv
2. symbol _ZnwmPv21boost_container_new_t from libboost_container.so: https://abi-laboratory.pro/index.php?view=navigator&selected=_ZnwmPv21boost_container_new_t
The project aims to help library users and maintainers to resolve issues with missed symbols and navigate through the ABI reports.
Have you ever encountered the "undefined reference" error or want to know whether the symbol is _stable_ enough to use in your code? Try to find it in the ABI Navigator!
