Release 1.58.0 of the Boost C++ Libraries is now available.

These open-source libraries work well with the C++ Standard Library, and
are usable across a broad spectrum of applications.
The Boost license encourages both commercial and non-commercial use.

This release contains two new libraries and numerous enhancements and bug
fixes for existing libraries.

New Libraries
* Endian: Types and conversion functions for correct byte ordering and more
regardless of processor endianness.
* Sort: Includes spreadsort, a general-case hybrid radix sort that is
faster than O(n*log(n))
