Fedora Update Notification

Name        : boost
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.47.0
Release     : 7.fc16
URL         : http://www.boost.org
Summary     : The free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries
Description :
Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.  The
emphasis is on libraries which work well with the C++ Standard
Library, in the hopes of establishing "existing practice" for
extensions and providing reference implementations so that the Boost
libraries are suitable for eventual standardization. (Some of the
libraries have already been proposed for inclusion in the C++
Standards Committee's upcoming C++ Standard Library Technical Report.)

Update Information:

- This update fixes a bug in Boost.Pool, which could under certain circumstances overflow allocated chunk size.  This could have security implications for applications that use Boost pool without sanitizing pool parameters.
- Add a sub-package boost-math with math-related bits from Boost.TR1.  This was left out by mistake.

* Wed Jun  6 2012 Petr Machata <pmachata at redhat.com> - 1.47.0-7
- In Boost.Pool, be careful not to overflow allocated chunk size.
- Resolves: #828857
* Wed Jan  4 2012 Denis Arnaud <denis.arnaud_fedora at m4x.org> - 1.47.0-6
- Integrated into "upstream" (CMake-ified Boost) the Boost.TR1/Math patch.
* Wed Jan  4 2012 Petr Machata <pmachata at redhat.com> - 1.47.0-5
- Build math portion of Boost.TR1, package DSOs in boost-math.
- Resolves: #771370
* Thu Nov  3 2011 Petr Machata <pmachata at redhat.com> - 1.47.0-4
- Use <boost/tr1/tuple> instead of C++11 header <tuple> in boost math.
- Resolves: #751210

  [ 1 ] Bug #828857 - boost: ordered_malloc() overflow [fedora-all]
  [ 2 ] Bug #771370 - Boost math libraries still needed
