This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection.
The Boost Python Library is used to quickly and easily export a C++
library to Python such that the Python interface is very similar to
the C++ interface. It is designed to be minimally intrusive on your
C++ design. In most cases, you should not have to alter your C++
classes in any way in order to use them with Boost.Python.  The
system should simply "reflect" your C++ classes and functions into
Python. The major features of Boost.Python include support for:
Subclassing extension types in Python, Overriding virtual functions
in Python, Member function Overloading, Automatic wrapping of
numeric operators among others.
This package also contains the pyste Boost.Python code generator that
allows the user to specify classes and functions to be exported using
a simple interface file, which following the Boost.Python's
philosophy, is simple Python code.
This package allows development of a Python interface for all current
versions of Python in Debian.  Code using this library will need also
one of the Python development packages.

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.
Closes: #758892.
* 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: 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.
2014-05-11 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
boost1.55 (1.55.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.
* Use Uscan extension 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: regenerated using  Set
Standards-Version to 3.9.5.
* Remove patches applied upstream:
- 001-coroutine.patch
- 002-date-time.patch
- boost-1.44-py3.1.patch
- boost-1.54.0-thread-link_atomic.patch
- 85160.patch
- eglibc-long-long.patch
* 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
reopen: #452410.
* Enable context library on ppc64, ppc64el.
2013-12-18 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
boost1.54 (1.54.0-5) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
[ William Grant ]
* debian/patches/eglibc-long-long.patch: Fix build with eglibc 2.18.
* debian/rules: Treat ppc64el like ppc64.
