BH release 1.55.0-3

Right on the heels of yesterday's BH release 1.55.0-2 bringing Boost Fusion, we now have release 1.55.0-3 bringing Boost Graph. To recap, BH is our CRAN package providing (a large part of the) Boost C++ libraries as a set of template headers for use by R and of course Rcpp.

And as a small project I am working on--and which should now be so much closer to release--needed not only Boost Fusion but also Boost Graph, I had to bother the CRAN maintainers twice in two days. This new version closes issue ticket 9, and may be of interest to other packages such as the venerable RBGL formerly on CRAN and now a BioConductor package which includes its own copy of this graph library (plus depends).

A brief summary of changes from the NEWS file is below.

Changes in version 1.55.0-3 (2015-01-04)
