Exclude references to the Boost from the SDK headers

Post by arabesc » Fri Nov 12, 2010 4:17 pm

Please remove all permanent references to the Boost library from the SDK headers!
I would like to use my own up-to-date and complete version of the Boost. It's not possible now becouse Ogre (or its addons) requires linking to it's own limited subset of the Boost.

This is clearly in the wont-fix category.

The SDK is precompiled, so you can't have it against your custom Boost.
Use the source.

The SDK is only meant as a quickstart for new users to Ogre. As such it includes everything that's needed, which obviously must include Boost. For any more experienced/advanced users and those who have specific requirements (like a custom Boost version), compiling their own Ogre build from source is the way to go.
