Boost was begun by members of the C++ standards committee Library Working Group to provide free peer-reviewed portable libraries to the C++ community. An additional objective is to establish "existing practice" and provide reference implementations so that the Boost libraries are suitable for eventual standardization. Indeed, the explicit intent is to propose many of these libraries for inclusion in the C++ Standard Library. The Boost Graph Library, formerly known as the Generic Graph Component Library (GGCL), is a collection of graph algorithms and data structures created in the generic programming style of the Standard Template Library (STL).

Release Notes: A tree data structure especially suited to storing configuration data has been added. The default format for time durations is now "%-%O:%M:%S%F" instead of "%-%H:%M:%S%F". The performance of the incomplete gamma function and its inverse was substantially improved, which enhances the performance of the gamma, poisson, chi-squared, and non-central chi-squared distributions. Support has been added for many Perl 5.10 syntax elements, including named sub-expressions, branch resets, and recursive regular expressions. Boost.Python supports Python 3.
Release Notes: Many new and updated libraries.
Release Notes: Python support was updated. PowerPC and PowerPC 64 problems were fixed. Bugs in makefiles, threading, and Linux heap handling were fixed.
Release Notes: The lbraries are updated, with lots and lots of improvements and new features and components added, including support for Python 2.3 and Intel C++ on Linux, provision of an element-preserving resize operation in MultiArray as well as the default construction, a major version upgrade of the Iterator Library, with an interface as proposed for the C++ library TR, including an improved iterator_adaptor design. A new Container Indexing Suite was added. Keyword arguments were improved, and there are better error messages, including name demangling for GCC. There is a simpler build procedure, and much more.
Release Notes: This version fixes a bug which caused many problems.
