 [section Updated Libraries]
+* [phrase library..[@/libs/asio/index.html Asio]:]
+ * Enhanced CompletionCondition concept with the signature
+ `size_t CompletionCondition(error_code ec, size_t total)`, where the return
+ value indicates the maximum number of bytes to be transferred on the next
+ read or write operation. (The old CompletionCondition signature is still
+ supported for backwards compatibility).
+ * New windows::overlapped_ptr class to allow arbitrary overlapped I/O
+ functions (such as TransmitFile) to be used with Asio.
+ * On recent versions of Linux, an eventfd descriptor is now used (rather than
+ a pipe) to interrupt a blocked select/epoll reactor.
+ * Added const overloads of lowest_layer().
+ * Synchronous read, write, accept and connect operations are now thread safe
+ (meaning that it is now permitted to perform concurrent synchronous
+ operations on an individual socket, if supported by the OS).
+ * Reactor-based io_service implementations now use lazy initialisation to
+ reduce the memory usage of an io_service object used only as a message
+ queue.
 * [phrase library..[@/libs/circular_buffer/index.html Circular Buffer]:]
   * Added new methods `is_linearized()` and `rotate(const_iterator)`.
   * Minor bug fixes and documentation updates.
