[Boost] [Hana] Formal review for Hana

Dear Boost community,

The formal review of Louis Dionne's Hana library begins today,10th June
and ends on 24th June.

Hana is a header-only library for C++ metaprogramming that provides
facilities for computations on both types and values. It provides a
superset of the functionality provided by Boost.MPL and Boost.Fusion
but with more expressiveness, faster compilation times, and faster (or
equal) run times.

To dive right in to examples, please see the Quick start section of the
library's documentation:
http://ldionne.com/hana/index.html#tutorial-quickstart

Hana makes use of C++14 language features and thus requires a C++14
conforming compiler. It is recommended you evaluate it with clang 3.5 or
higher.

Hana's source code is available on Github:
https://github.com/ldionne/hana

Full documentation is also viewable on Github:
http://ldionne.github.io/hana

To read the documentation offline:
git clone http://github.com/ldionne/hana --branch=gh-pages doc/gh-pages

For a gentle introduction to Hana, please see:

[boost] [metaparse] Review period starts May 25th and ends June 7th

Dear all,

The review of the Metaparse library starts next Monday, May 25th and ends
June 7th. Metaparse was written by Abel Sinkovics.

Metaparse is a parser generator library for template metaprograms.
The purpose of this library is to support the creation of parsers that
parse at compile time.
This library is intended to be used for embedded domain specific language
creation for C++ and can help libraries provide a better interface.
It is similar to Boost.Spirit, however while parsers built with Spirit
parse at run-time, parsers built with Metaparse parse at compile-time.
It makes it possible for library authors to provide an interface that
follows the common notation of the problem domain of the library.
(eg. SQL queries, grammars, etc written in their common notation instead of
similar-looking C++ expressions).
For example there is a (yet incomplete) interface for Boost.Spirit that
makes it possible to write

 MPLLIBS_REGEX("^[abcd][3-8]\\.foo$")

instead of

 bos >> set[as_xpr('a')|'b'|'c'|'d'] >> range('3','8') >> '.' >> 'f' >>
'o' >> 'o' >> eos

and make the parser built with Metaparse generate the latter expression
from the former one.

(It can be found here:

[gsoc15] Please help rank GSoC 2015 student projects

Dear Boost Community,

The Google Summer of Code 2015 proposals for Boost are in, and we 
would
deeply appreciate the community's help in ranking the proposals 
according
to merit before the 6th of April.

To vote, the process is easy:

1. Go to this page 
https://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2015 and 
click the
"Log in" button under Mentors and Administrators.

2. Now click "Create Profile" on the same page. Note that even if you
registered last year, you must register again in 2015. Fill in the 
form.
Note that after submitting it drops you at "Edit Profile", which is
confusing.

3. Click "My Dashboard", then "Connect with organisations".

4. Choose "Boost C++ Libraries".

5. In the message box, write this: "I am a member of the Boost 
community
and the email(s) I normally post to boost mailing lists with is 
<email>"
filling in the email address(es) you normally use to post to boost

Boost release 1.58.0 beta 1 is now available from SourceForge

Boost release 1.58.0 beta 1 is now available from SourceForge

See http://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.58.0.beta.1/

This release contains three new libraries:
• Endian: Types and conversion functions for correct byte ordering and more regardless of processor endianness.
• Sort: includes spreadsort, a general-case hybrid radix sort that is faster than O(n*log(n))
• WinAPI: 

For details of what's in the release, see http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_58_0.html
Note that the links to files on this web page are for the final release - use the SourceForge link above to get the beta files.

Please download the beta, give it a try, and report any problems you encounter.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
There is a bug with the build scripts; you have to specify the address-mode and architecture to b2.
I used:
        ./b2 address-model=64 architecture=x86

(this will be fixed before the final release)

Thanks,

-- The Boost Release Team

Dear Boost.

I am very pleased to report that Boost has been accepted as a GSoC 
org for 2015. Student applications begin on Monday March 16th, in 
just under two weeks, and last ten days until Friday March 27th.  

If you haven't added your proposal ideas to 
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/SoC2015, now is the time to do 
so. If you would like to add your name to the ten other mentors who 
have made themselves available this summer, please do get in contact.

VMD library accepted

AMDG

The VMD library submitted by Edward Diener is ACCEPTED into Boost.

I apologize for the long delay for this announcement.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the formal review
* Nial Douglass
* Bjorn Reese
* Rodrigo Madera
* Zhou Zhenghui
* Matt Calabrese
* Paul Mensonides

  Reviews for the library were generally positive.
The library was considered to be a useful set of
tools for macro programmers.  Paul expressed concern
about the way the the library handles v-sequences and
v-identifiers.  After some discussion, Edward has
agreed that the interface could be significantly improved.

Work Items:
* Add examples and improved motivation in the documentation
* Update the v-identifier/v-sequence interface based
  on Paul's comments
* Fix inaccurate statements about Boost.Preprocessor per Paul

In Christ,
Steven Watanabe

[gsoc15] Org application closes on Friday 20th

Three days remain until the GSoC org application closes on Friday 
20th of April. As can be seen at 
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/SoC2015, we have just SIX 
project proposals and FIVE mentors who have publicly made themselves 
available on the ideas list this year. This is significantly lower 
than this time last year.

If you would like to attract students to work on your Boost library 
in 2015, please consider adding a formal project idea to the list 
above before Friday.

If you would like to mentor in some topic or field, please make 
yourself known to us so we can add you to the list of available 
mentors for 2015.
Oh, and don't forget to mention the fields you are interested in!

Thanks,
Niall and Boris

[gsoc15] Google Summer of Code 2015 ideas needed before 20th Feb

Dear Boost community,

The Google Summer of Code 2015 organisation application period has 
begun. We need project ideas for our ideas page at 
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/SoC2015, plus anyone willing to 
mentor.

Last year we got eight slots, the previous year seven slots. Let's 
try to get back to ten slots for 2015!
