I'm using dynamic linking on windows and since upgrading to boost 1.35,
I'm seeing a new dependency on the boost_date_time shared library.
My source code boils down to:
int main(int argc, char* argv)
The dependent symbol in boost_date_time.dll is
Looking at the mutex headers, I see that the definition of mutex has
changed a bit since 1.34 (at least under win32).
typedef ::boost::detail::basic_timed_mutex underlying_mutex;
Clearly, the implementation code for a boost::mutex is actually a timed
mutex which explains the dependency on date_time.
This isn't a big problem of course, but its nice to be able to ship as
few dlls as necessary and we've never had to ship boost_date_time
before. Is this something that could be addressed in future versions?
