Boost 1.32 out

For you C++ heads out there, the Boost team has just released a new vesion of their amazing collection of libraries. If you code in C++ these libraries should be part of your development environment, it's as simple as that.

It's been almost 10 months since the last release and the Boost gang have used that time to create a whole slew of new libraries (Serialization, Assignment, Program Options, Multi-index Container, String Algorithm - just to name a few) and they've significantly updated many of the existing libraries (Graph, Python, MPL, Signals). Not to mention a huge number of defect fixes and documentation improvements.

'Nuff said, update your revision tool to include the new version of Boost! :)

As a long-time lurker to the boost mailing list, I'm well aware of the effort that is put into these libraries - and the uncompromising quality applied in the review process is phenomenal. HUGE thanks to the Boost guys from a very grateful C++ developer!

If you're a C++ developer who doesn't use, or see the need for, Boost libraries, please get in contact with me. I'll do my best to change your mind.
