All features deprecated in version 1.29.0 have been removed from Boost.Function.
The boost::bad_function_call exception class was introduced.
Version 1.29.0: Boost.Function has been partially redesigned to minimize the interface and make it cleaner. Several seldom- or never-used features of the older Boost.Function have been deprecated and will be removed in the near future. Here is a list of features that have been deprecated, the likely impact of the deprecations, and how to adjust your code:
The boost::function class template syntax has changed. The old syntax, e.g., boost::function<int, float, double, std::string>, has been changed to a more natural syntax boost::function<int (float, double, std::string)>, where all return and argument types are encoded in a single function type parameter. Any other template parameters (e.g., the Allocator) follow this single parameter.
The resolution to this change depends on the abilities of your compiler: if your compiler supports template partial specialization and can parse function types (most do), modify your code to use the newer syntax (preferable) or directly use one of the functionN classes whose syntax has not changed. If your compiler does not support template partial specialization or function types, you must take the latter option and use the numbered Boost.Function classes. This option merely requires changing types such as boost::function<void, int, int> to boost::function2<void, int, int> (adding the number of function arguments to the end of the class name).
Support for the old syntax with the boost::function class template will persist for a short while, but will eventually be removed so that we can provide better error messages and link compatibility.
The invocation policy template parameter (Policy) has been deprecated and will be removed. There is no direct equivalent to this rarely used feature.
The mixin template parameter (Mixin) has been deprecated and will be removed. There is not direct equivalent to this rarely used feature.
The set methods have been deprecated and will be removed. Use the assignment operator instead.
