Boost 1.57 Released

Boost 1.57 has been released.

From the homepage:

Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.

We emphasize libraries that work well with the C++ Standard Library. Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable across a broad spectrum of applications. The Boost license encourages both commercial and non-commercial use.


Using Boost Libraries in Windows Store and Phone Applications

Steven Gates has written a blog post on how to use Boost libraries in applications for the Windows store and Windows Phone .  The changes necessary to support these environments haven’t yet been merged into the master branches of the relevant Boost modules on github yet, but you can obtain them from the instructions in Steven’s blog post.  Steven is requesting feedback via his blog on these changes and input on enabling more Boost libraries for these environments.
