A new release of the
is now on CRAN
and its mirrors. BH
provides (a sizeable subset of) the Boost
library for C++, particularly (large) parts delivered as pure template
headers not requiring linking. See the
page for more details.
This release provides our first update relative to the Boost tarballs we
started with. It moves us from 1.51.0 (which was getting a little long in
the tooth) to 1.54.0. This is just about the first time ever that I didn't
package something straight from the current release (now 1.55.0). My aim was to
to balance the oh, shiny, new
aspect with some stability. Comments
welcome--maybe I will go to the bleeding edge next time.
As before, the CRAN is created by running
over a number of
selected components of Boost. If you'd like to see additional ones include,
please do get in touch too. Before uploading, I also tested against all of
these sixteen CRAN dependents I could quickly test on my server given the
installed dependencies there.
The complete list changes follows below.
