- <h2 class="title">Welcome to the Boost C++ Libraries, Release 1.35.0!</h2>
- <p>Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.</p>
- <p>We emphasize libraries that work well with the C++ Standard Library.
- Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable across a broad
- spectrum of applications. The <a href=
- "">Boost license</a> encourages both
- commercial and non-commercial use.</p>
- <p>We aim to establish "existing practice" and provide reference
- implementations so that Boost libraries are suitable for eventual
- standardization. Ten Boost libraries are already included in the <a href=
- "">C++ Standards Committee's</a>
- Library Technical Report (<a href=
- "">TR1</a>)
- and will be included in the upcoming revision of the C++ Standard. More
- Boost libraries are proposed for the upcoming <a href=
- "">TR2</a>.</p>
- <h3>Changes in this release</h3>
- <p>This release includes new libraries blah, blah, and blah, and
- maintenance fixes to existing libraries. See <a href="????">Release
- History</a> for more information.</p>
- <h3>Getting Started</h3>
- <p>If Boost hasn't already been installed on your system, follow the
- Getting Started Guide to
- complete the installation. But if you've reached to this point by
- installing Boost from a Windows pre-build executable or a pre-built Linux
- and Unix distribution package, that's already been completed. Likewise, if
- you're reading this on your organization's internal web server, the
- installation is probably already complete.</p>
- <h3>Contents</h3>
- <p>The release directory tree contains almost all of Boost; documentation,
- sources, headers, scripts, tools, and everything else a Boost user might
- need!</p>
- <h3>Library Documentation</h3>
- <p>The starting point for the documentation of individual libraries is the
- Libraries page, which gives a brief
- description of each library and links to its documentation.</p>
- <h3>Web Site</h3>
- <p>Some general interest or often changing Boost information lives only on
- the Boost web site. The release contains
- links to the site, so while browsing it you'll see occasional broken links
- if you aren't connected to the Internet. But everything needed to use the
- Boost libraries is contained within the release.</p>
- <h3>Background</h3>
- <p>Read the introductory material
- to help you understand what Boost is about and to help in educating your
- organization about Boost.</p>
- <h3>Community</h3>
- <p>Boost welcomes and thrives on participation from a variety of
- individuals and organizations. Many avenues for participation are available
- in the Boost Community.</p>
