		Admittedly, the latest Boost release is taking longer than what we  
would have hoped (it is an overwhelmingly volunteer effort, and as  
far as I am concerned, I know I was far less available to help than I  
would have liked, so I can understand that others are in the same  
boat...), but I can assure you that Boost is alive and well, and last  
I heard the next release is indeed now at hand.

		As regards the Python bindings in particular, a lot has been done,  
as can be seen from messages on the c++-sig list. At any rate, it is  
always possible to join Boost and download the WIP library rather  
than the official release if there is a particular, urgent, need.

	Bon courage
