You are right, we should have announced before.

Boost.Geometry is accepted with several contingencies. They should be
solved before inclusion. This takes time. Documentation has to be updated.

It is, as far as I understand, "normal" that there are several months
between acceptance and incorporation. Sometimes even years (switch
library). UUID, included now for the first time, was accepted in January
2009. RangeEx, accepted in March, is not yet included (alas, we want to
use it!). (All dates as far as I remember, didn't check them)

We're working on the library, I don't hope it will take us that long,
but 1.42 was not feasable at all. I hope 1.43 but even that is already
coming soon.

Regards, Barend
