For Boost.Geometry this includes:

Additional functionality:
- New algorithm num_segments, returning the number of segments of a geometry
- New overload for is_valid algorithm, that takes a string or an eum reference as a second argument and fills it with a value or message related to the validity or invalidity of the geometry
- Disjoint and intersects support the following geometry combinations: point/multipoint, multipoint/multipoint, multipoint/segment, multipoint/box

- Buffer performance is improved significantly
- Partition performance is improved significantly for polygons

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))
