Boost 1.35 released

Boost 1.35 has been finally released. Highlights include:

  • Rewritten Boost.Thread to closely match the C++0x Thread library, and with native_handle () support. Works great, I already ported a project to it, so far no problems. Includes also synchronisation primitives like conditions.
  • Boost.Asio: Networking in Boost!
  • Boost.Interprocess: Shared memory, memory-mapped files, etc.

Moreover, some very interesting libraries like the Generic Image Library GIL (from Adobe) have been added, but I didn't have a chance to try them. Compiled fine with VC9/Vista for x64 & x86 (see also how to compile Boost with VC9 for x86 & x64)
