libboost-chrono1.55.0 - C++ representation of time duration, time point, and clocks
||Debian 8 (Jessie)
||Debian Main i386
|| 55 B
This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection.
The Boost.Chrono library provides:
* A means to represent time durations: managed by the generic duration
class.Examples of time durations include days, minutes, seconds and
nanoseconds, which can be represented with a fixed number of clock
ticks per unit. All of these units of time duration are united with
a generic interface by the duration facility.
* A type for representing points in time: time_point. A time_point
represents an epoch plus or minus a duration. The library leaves
epochs unspecified. A time_point is associated with a clock.
* Several clocks, some of which may not be available on a particular
platform: system_clock, steady_clock and high_resolution_clock. A
clock is a pairing of a time_point and duration, and a function
which returns a time_point representing now.
To make the timing facilities more generally useful, Boost.Chrono
provides a number of clocks that are thin wrappers around the
operating system's time APIs, thereby allowing the extraction of wall
clock time, user CPU time, system CPU time spent by the process:
* process_real_cpu_clock, captures wall clock CPU time spent by the
* process_user_cpu_clock, captures user-CPU time spent by the current
* process_system_cpu_clock, captures system-CPU time spent by the
* a tuple-like class process_cpu_clock, that captures real, user-CPU,
and system-CPU process times together.
* a thread_clock thread steady clock giving the time spent by the
current thread (when supported by a platform).
Lastly, Boost.Chrono includes typeof registration for duration and
time_point to permit using emulated auto with C++03 compilers.

boost1.55 (1.55.0+dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* patches/boost-1.55-128bit_int_support.patch: New. Patch fixing build
where 128-bit integer not supported, cherry-picked from upstream.
* patches/ppc64el-fp_traits-ibm-long-double.patch: New. Patch removing
fp_traits_non_native for long double on powerPC, which is apparently
broken. Closes: #761926.
* control.in, control: Update vcs URLs.

boost1.55 (1.55.0+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Disable pch on arm64, to avoid FTBFS. (Closes: #750956)
* Speed up qemu-static builds a little, by not working perl many times
when computing version strings to use.

* Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.
* Use Uscan extension https://wiki.debian.org/UscanEnhancements to
declare excluded file (W3C validation icon)
* Use uscan to download current version of boost, and thus
auto-repackage with above non-dfsg file removed. Or
e.g. --svn-download-orig option to svn-buildpackage.
* Adjust version parsing in the debian/rules to keep the same versioning

boost1.55 (1.55.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* In libboost-python1.55-dev drop gccxml to Suggests as it's not
available on all architectures, is based upon old gcc, and not at all
required to compile boost-python based projects.
* Mark libboost1.55-dev & libboost-coroutine1.55-dev as Multi-Arch same.
* Automate more of building boost without mpi, or just mpi portions.

boost1.55 (1.55.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Steve M. Robbins ]
* New upstream.
- control.in, control: regenerated using update-control.py. Set
Standards-Version to 3.9.5.
* Remove patches applied upstream:
* patches/endian.patch: Remove. Upstream changed endian detection.
* patches/boost-1.55.0-001-log_fix_dump_avx2.patch: New. Upstream patch
to fix incorrect output of the dump manipulator, when used on
AVX2-enabled CPU (e.g. Intel Haswell).
* rules: Suppress warnings about unused local typedefs
(-Wno-unused-local-typedefs) because they are massively generated by
Boost Concept Check Library.
[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* Refresh patches/ELFv2-libboost1.54-dev-context-asm.patch
* Refresh patches/boost-python-examples.patch: Hopefully does not
* Enable context library on ppc64, ppc64el.

* debian/rules: Treat ppc64el like ppc64.
