Patches for specific release problems
This is an experiment. Please send feedback on usefulness to the Boost Developers list.
Boost developers make some bug fixes available in the form of patches.
- Patches are specific to the indicated Boost release, and may not work correctly or at all for other releases.
- Patches assume that prior (lower numbered) changeset patches for the library have been applied.
- Patches are not tested as rigorously as releases. It is safer to only apply patches if you actually need them.
- Patches are generally only supplied for code contained entirely in headers.
- Backing up before applying patches is recommended.

Instructions for applying patches
Prerequisite: The patch command line utility. patch is preinstalled on Mac OS X and most Linux or Unix systems. For Windows, it may already be installed as part of the Cygwin package, or a stand-alone version is available from the GNU Win32 project on SourceForge.
- In the table, click the link for the desired Changeset.
- On the bottom of the Changeset page, click on "Download in other formats: Unified Diff".
- Open a command prompt window using your operating system. Enter these two commands, replacing boost-root with the path to your Boost installation, download-path with the path to your download directory, and # with the changeset number:
cd boost-root patch -p 2 <download-path/changeset_r#.diff
Note the "<" before the location of the download-path. If you forget it, patch will hang waiting for console input.
