Boost 1.34.1, the latest version of peer-reviewed, portable C++
has been released. This is a bug fix release addressing many problems
with the 1.34.0 release. It is a recommended upgrade for all users of
Boost 1.34.0. For a complete list of fixes see the Boost Trac at:

Supported Compilers:

New in this release is improved support for the IBM XL C/C++ compiler.

Boost is tested on a wide range of compilers and platforms. Since Boost
libraries rely on modern C++ features not available in all compilers,
all Boost libraries will work with every compiler. The following
and platforms have been extensively tested with Boost, although many
other compilers and platforms will work as well. For more information,
see the regression test results.

     * Apple GCC 4.0.1 on Mac OS X.
     * Borland C++ 5.8.2 on Windows.
     * GNU C++
           o 3.2.x., 3.3.x, 3.4.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x on Linux
           o 4.1.x on Solaris
           o 3.4.x on Windows
     * HP C++ for Tru64 UNIX 7.1.
     * HP aC++ A.06.14.
     * Intel C++ 9.1 on Windows, 9.0 on Linux.
     * Metrowerks CodeWarrior 9.4 on Windows.
     * Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 (sp5, with and without STLport), 7.0,
7.1, 8.0.
       Note: Boost does not support the non-standard "Safe" C++ Library
             shipping with Visual C++ 8.0, which may result in many
             warnings from Boost headers and other standards-conforming
             C++ code. To suppress these warnings,
             define the macro _SCL_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE.
     * Sun Studio 11 on Solaris.


Thomas Witt managed this release.

A great number of people contributed their time and expertise to make
release possible. Special thanks go to Kim Barrett consolidating
changes from various branches and Rene Rivera for general build and
installation support.
