Boost version control has migrated
to a system using git submodules. This shouldn't make too much
of a difference to users, although the directory structure is
now a bit different.
Parts of some libraries have been moved into different
modules, and several new modules have been extracted from
existing code. All header paths should remain the same. The
new modules are:
assert macros. Maintained by Peter Dimov.
utilities used by other libraries, with minimal
dependencies. Maintained by Peter Dimov, Glen Fernandes and
literal text conversions, such as an int represented a
string, or vice-versa, from Kevlin Henney.
common infrastructure for throwing exceptions from Boost
libraries, from Emil Dotchevski.
API declarations without <windows.h>, for internal
=== New Libraries ===
alignment functions, allocators, and adaptors, from Glen
time copyable type info, from Antony Polukhin.
