+[h4 Milestone 5: Post Review First Official Release]
[h4 Milestone 1: Released March 31st 2006]

* Implement gamma/beta/erf functions along with their incomplete counterparts.
* Generate high quality test data, against which future improvements can be judged.
* Provide tools for the evaluation of infinite series, continued fractions, and
rational functions.
* Provide tools for testing against tabulated test data, and collecting statistics
on error rates.
* Provide sufficient docs for people to be able to find their way around the library.
+* Added Policy based framework that allows fine grained control
+over function behaviour.
+* [*Breaking change:] Changed default behaviour for domain, pole and overflow errors
+to throw an exception (based on review feedback), this
+behaviour can be customised using __Policy's.
+* [*Breaking change:] Changed exception thrown when an internal evaluation error
+occurs to boost::math::evaluation_error.
+* [*Breaking change:] Changed discrete quantiles to return an integer result:
+this is anything up to 20 times faster than finding the true root, this
+behaviour can be customised using __Policy's.
+* Polynomial/rational function evaluation is now customisable and hopefully
+faster than before.
+* Added performance test program.
[h4 Milestone 2: Released September 10th 2006]
+[h4 Milestone 4: Second Review Candidate (1st March 2007)]
* Implement preview release of the statistical distributions.
* Added statistical distributions tutorial.
* Implemented root finding algorithms.
* Implemented the inverses of the incomplete gamma and beta functions.
* Rewrite erf/erfc as rational approximations (valid to 128bit precision).
* Integrated the statistical results generated from
the test data with Boost.Test: uses a database of expected
results, indexed by test, floating point type, platform, and compiler.
* Improved lgamma near 1 and 2 (rational approximations).
* Improved erf/erfc inverses (rational approximations).
* Implemented Rational function generation (the Remez method).
+* Moved Xiaogang Zhang's Bessel Functions code into the library,
+and brought them into line with the rest of the code.
+* Added C# "Distribution Explorer" demo application.

[h4 Future]
+[h4 Milestone 2: Released September 10th 2006]
* Some TR1 Special functions are still needed.
* Higher level statistical tests, perhaps integrated with Eric Neiblers
accumulator library.
+* Implement preview release of the statistical distributions.
+* Added statistical distributions tutorial.
