is now on the CRAN mirrors.

This release is the third based on Boost 1.54.0.

At the request of the maintainer of the recent added
RcppMLPACK package, it adds the
Boost.Heap library.
implements priority queues which extend beyond
the corresponding (and somewhat simpler) class in the STL. Key features of
the Boost.Heap
priority queues are mutability, iterators, ability to merge,
stable sort, and comparison.

No other changes were made.

Changes in version 1.54.0-3 (2014-08-03)

  • Added Boost Heap library which will be needed by the next version of RcppMLPACK

Courtesy of CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report for the
most recent release.

Comments and suggestions are welcome via the mailing list or issue tracker at the
