The BH 1.72.0-1 release of BH required one update 1.72.0-2 when I botched a hand-edited path (to comply with the old-school path-length-inside-tar limit).

Turns out another issue needed a fix. This release improved on prior ones by starting from a pristine directory. But as a side effect, Boost Accumulators ended up incomplete with only the dependented-upon-by-others files included (by virtue of the bcp tool). So now we declared Boost Accumulators a full-fledged part of BH ensuring that bcp copies it “whole”. If you encounter issues with another incomplete part, please file an issue ticket at the GitHub repo.

Also, this fix was done initially while CRAN took a well-deserved winter break, and I had tweeted on Dec 31 about availability via drat and may use this more often for pre-releases. CRAN is now back, and this (large !!) package is now processed as part of the wave of packages that were in waiting (and Henrik got that right yesterday…).

Via CRANberries, there is a diffstat report relative to the previous release.

Comments and suggestions about BH are welcome via the issue tracker at the GitHub repo.
