Sorry for the late reaction.

I had to dig it up but projected_point<Point> is now not templated
anymore with Point but with an optional calculation type. So saying the
next is OK:

* typedef boost::geometry::strategy::distance::projected_point<>
* typedef
PointSegmentDistanceStrategy> SimplificationStrategy;
         SimplificationStrategy strat;

and then one of:
         boost::geometry::simplify<LineString, double,
SimplificationStrategy>(raw, ret, 20, strat);
         boost::geometry::simplify(raw, ret, 20, strat);
         boost::geometry::simplify(raw, ret, 20);

(because you use the default simplify strategy, you don't have to
mention it)

This change was already done in July 2013 (so indeed, as you mentioned,
for 1.55) and alas it was mentioned in the release notes but as a TODO
(to be documented) item. Sorry for the inconvience.

Regards, Barend
