Known Issues

These are patches from library authors which were found too late to be fixed in the release.

  • Boost.Filesystem directory iterators may fail to construct for a network share on Windows prior to 10, see PR#246 and #245. Patch.
  • In Boost.Filesystem on Windows, weakly_canonical fails to process paths that start with the "\\?\" prefix, see #247. Patch.

New Libraries

  • No new libraries.

Updated Libraries

  • Asio:
    • Added a deduced trailing return type to all asynchronous operations, to enable the new form of async_result for C++11.
    • Moved append, prepend, as_tuple, and deferred to the boost::asio namespace, and made them compatible with C++11.
    • Made experimental::parallel_group compatible with C++11.
    • Added buffer() overloads for contiguous containers, such as std::span.
    • Added the ability for awaitable<>-based coroutines to directly co_await operations that are packaged as function objects.
    • Changed spawn() to be a completion token-based asynchronous operation, and added support for cancellation. The basic_yield_context token now supports move-only and variadic result types. When targeting C++11 and later, spawn() and basic_yield_context are implemented in terms of Boost.Context directly.
    • Added the is_async_operation trait and async_operation concept.
    • Added the completion_signature_of trait.
    • Added converting move construction/assignment to posix descriptors, serial ports, pipes, Windows object_handle, Windows stream handles, and Windows random-access handles.
    • Added release() member functions to pipes, Windows stream handles, and Windows random-access handles.
    • Enabled support for Endpoint implementations that return void pointers from their data() member functions, as per the documented Endpoint type requirements.
    • Removed all() and race() from experimental::promise, as experimental::parallel_group covers this functionality.
    • Added source locations to exceptions and error codes produced by the synchronous and asynchronous operations.
    • Fixed compatibility with OpenSSL 3.0.4 and later.
    • Fixed compatibility with with -masm=intel.
    • Explicitly stated that socket shutdown() calls are thread-safe with respect to certain other synchronous operations on the same socket.
    • Optimised the move construction of I/O objects where only the executor type differs.
    • Fixed the detection of std::invoke_result for clang/libc++.
    • Fixed an issue where experimental::parallel_group initiation incorrectly moved arguments instead of forwarding them.
    • Fixed a sequencing issue in the implementation of post(), dispatch(), and defer().
    • Fixed the awaitable<> implementation to propagate exceptions from awaited initiation functions through the current completion handler.
    • Fixed detection of std::aligned_alloc with gcc 7.
    • Changed to avoid using the soon-to-be-deprecated std::aligned_storage on newer compilers.
    • Fixed detection of std::aligned_alloc for older Apple platforms.
    • Removed faulty assertions from experimental::coro implementation.
    • Added defence against Qt-defined macros when building with Intel C++.
    • Changed the implementation of the select_reactor, on Windows, to ensure that any exception resulting from failure to recreate its interrupter's sockets will be allowed to propagate out through io_context::run().
    • Fixed various compiler warnings.
    • Updated all composed operations examples, and the C++11 timeouts example, to use the new async_result form.
    • Added composed operation and coroutine examples for C++20.
    • Consult the Revision History for further details.
  • Atomic:
    • Improved portability of endianness checks on ARM, AArch32 and AArch64 targets. (#59)
    • Fixed compilation with MSVC 14.0 (Visual Studio 2015) in C++17 mode. (#61)
  • Filesystem:
    • On Windows, added a fallback implementation for querying file attributes in case if the file cannot be opened with ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED error. This may allow status and symlink_status to succeed for system files and directories that are not reparse points or symlinks. (#234)
    • On Windows, added a workaround for FAT/exFAT filesystems that produce ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER when querying file attributes. This affected status and symlink_status, which reported that files do not exist, and directory iterators, which failed to construct, as well as other dependent operations. (#236, #237)
    • Worked around a compilation problem on RTEMS. (PR#240)
    • On Linux, corrected switching to sendfile copy_file implementation if copy_file_range failed with ENOSYS in runtime. The sendfile fallback implementation used to skip the filesystem type check and could fail for some filesystems.
    • On POSIX systems supporting openat and related APIs defined in POSIX.1-2008 and on Windows Vista and later, improved protection of remove_all against CVE-2022-21658 that was implemented in the previous release. The previous fix could still result in removing unintended files in certain conditions. Other systems remain vulnerable.
  • GIL: NOTICE: We are planning BREAKING switch to C++17 as minimum required C++ language version in one or two releases after Boost 1.80 (#676)
    • Added
      • GSoC 2020: Added Perona-Malik anisotropic diffusion algorithm (PR#500)

      • GSoC 2020: Added histogram equalization feature (PR#514)
      • GSoC 2020: Added histogram matching algorithm (PR#515)
      • GSoC 2020: Added ability to stack images either horizontally (hstack) or vertically (vstack) (PR#506)

      • Added C++17 polymorphic memory resource typedefs for image class (PR#529)
    • Changed
      • BREAKING: The required minimum C++ version is changed from from C++11 to C++14. Currently, large parts of GIL still compile with a C++11 compiler. However, there is no guarantee that it stays that way, and any compilers that do not support at least C++14 are considered unsupported as of now.
      • BREAKING: any_color_converted_view() is deprecated and will be removed in the next release. Use color_converted_view() instead, which provides the same feature.
      • BREAKING: apply_operation for any_image is deprecated and will be removed in the next release. Use variant2::visit instead, which provides the same feature. (PR#656)
      • Moved numeric extension to core (PR#573)
      • Added support for C++17's <filesystem> (PR#636) The availability of the std::filesystem is detected automatically, unless the BOOST_GIL_IO_USE_BOOST_FILESYSTEM macro is defined that forces the preference of the Boost.Filesystem.

      • Fixed for_each_pixel for non-1d iterable views (PR#621)
      • Fixed: is_equal_to_sixteen in PNG I/O was less-than test (PR#650)
      • Re-allow devicen_t with two components (PR#654) It was unintentionally removed in Boost 1.72
      • Fixed memory leak in image class for empty dimensions (PR#649)

    • Fix conflict between boost/cstdfloat.hpp and this library.
    • Clean up lots of gcc and clang warnings.
    • Fix input streaming of composite types (complex, interval rational) where there is a trailing delimeter in the stream and no whitespace.
    • Fix constexpr integer square root where the input is 1, 2 or 3.
    • Add missing #include of <memory> to float128.hpp.
    • Correct 2-arg constructor for class number to prevent ambiguity in some cases.
    • Correct and make more consistent behaviour of divide-by-zero in gmp.hpp.

    • basic_filebuf: Limit putback of characters (i.e. pbackfail) only allowing putback of buffered characters (may be only 1 character)
  • Optional:
    • Added specializations for std::hash<boost::optional<T>>. This is a breaking change for programs that define such specializations themselves. For more details see specs.
  • STLInterfaces:
    • Fix #53: "missing 'typename' prior to dependent type name 'C::const_iterator'"
    • Fix #54: "Concept check fails on .data() of a view on contiguous iterator_interface instantiations"
    • New additions to make it easy to write views and view adaptors that work like, and interoperate with, the ones in the standard library:
      • Add workalikes for C++23's std::bind_back() and std::range_adaptor_closure for pre-C++23 code.
      • Add templates closure and adaptor to make writing view adaptors easier, following the examples in P2387.
  • System:
    • When an error_code is converted to std::error_code and then back to error_code, the original is now restored, if possible.
    • Reworked the conversion from error_category to std::error_category to avoid the one-time allocation that shows up on leak checkers.
    • Added a constructor that allows replacing the source location of an error_code, and a corresponding assign.
    • Added a converting constructor to result.
  • Unordered: Major update:
    • Refactor internal implementation to be dramatically faster
    • Allow final Hasher and KeyEqual objects
    • Update documentation, adding benchmark graphs and notes on the new internal data structures
  • Utility:
    • In string_view/string_ref, fixed max_size returning incorrect value. (#91)
    • Removed noexcept specifier from string_view::compare as it may throw on some input arguments. (#94)
    • In string_view/string_ref, added support for calling substr with no arguments. (#96)
    • Added string_view::contains methods that were introduced in C++23. (#93)
    • In string_view, added asserts in remove_prefix/remove_suffix methods to enforce the precondition that the prefix/suffix length does not exceed the string view size. The previous (undocumented) behavior of silently clamping the prefix/suffix length is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. (#92)
  • Wave: Fixed bugs:
    • #24: Line numbers wrong after conditional section
    • #160: one test fails with error C2660 and error C2440 under msvc /permissive- mode
    • #161: BOOST_WAVE_THROW_NAME_CTX does not result in a context callback and always throws
    • #162: When Boost headers are included in the preprocessed translation unit, Wave fails in boost/integer.hpp(99)
