- 19 November 2004 - 1.32 release
- Updated to use the Boost Software License.
- A new, better method of wrapping classes with virtual functions has been implemented.
- Support for upcoming GCC symbol export control features have been folded in, thanks to Niall Douglas.
- Improved support for
- The Visual C++ bug that makes top-level cv-qualification of function parameter types part of the function type has been worked around.
- Components used by other libraries have been moved out of
python/detail and into
boost/detail to improve dependency relationships.
- Miscellaneous bug fixes and compiler workarounds.

Support for Python's Bool type, thanks to Daniel Holth.
- 11 Sept 2003
- Changed the response to multiple to-python converters being
registered for the same type from a hard error into warning;
Boost.Python now reports the offending type in the message.
- Added builtin
std::out_of_range => Python
IndexError exception conversion, thanks to Raoul Gough
- 9 Sept 2003
- Added new
- constructors which take a range of characters, allowing strings
containing nul (
- 8 Sept 2003
- Added the ability to create methods from function objects (with an
operator()); see the make_function docs for
- 10 August 2003
- Added the new
properties unit tests contributed by Roman Yakovenko and documented
add_static_property at his urging.
- 1 August 2003
Added the new
arg class contributed by Nikolay Mladenov which supplies the
ability to wrap functions that can be called with ommitted arguments
in the middle:
void f(int x = 0, double y = 3.14, std::string z = std::string("foo"));
, (arg("x", 0), arg("y", 3.14), arg("z", "foo")));
And in Python:
>>> import test
>>> f(0, z = "bar")
>>> f(z = "bar", y = 0.0)

- Killed the dreaded "bad argument type for builtin operation" error.
Argument errors now show the actual and expected argument types!
- 19 July 2003
- Added the new
return_arg policy from Nikolay Mladenov. Thanks,
- 18 March, 2003
Ganßauge has contributed opaque pointer support.
Bruno da Silva de Oliveira
has contributed the exciting Pyste
- 24 February 2003
- Finished improved support for
any wrapped object of C++ class
X can be converted
shared_ptr<X>, regardless of how it
was wrapped. The
shared_ptr will manage the lifetime of
the Python object which supplied the
X, rather than just
X object itself, and when such a
shared_ptr is converted back to Python, the original
Python object will be returned.

staticmethod support from Nikolay Mladenov. Thanks,
- 29 December 2002
- Added Visual Studio project file and instructions from Brett
Calcott. Thanks, Brett!
- 20 December 2002
- Added automatic downcasting for pointers, references, and smart
pointers to polymorphic class types upon conversion to python
- 18 December 2002
- Optimized from_python conversions for wrapped classes by putting
the conversion logic in the shared library instead of registering
separate converters for each class in each extension module
- 19 November 2002
- Removed the need for users to cast base class member function
pointers when used as arguments to add_property
- 13 December 2002
- Allow exporting of
enum_ values into enclosing
Fixed unsigned integer conversions to deal correctly with numbers that
are out-of-range of
