we will indeed be bumping our minimum Boost version to 1.46 for 3.8.0.
As you've already discussed in this thread, this doesn't mean we CentOS
6 won't work anymore, as it's a simple matter to update Boost.
If you're using PyBombs to install UHD, this will automate the process
for you.

A short note on distros: We will make an effort to make UHD build on any
not-too-old Linux (and other OSes) that meet our dependencies, but we
mainly test on current Ubuntu and Fedora versions (those for which we
also provide binary installers), Mac OS X and Windows 7. If it doesn't
matter to you which distro you're using, we thus recommend Ubuntu or
Fedora, but as I said, we'll do our best to write portable code to make
it work on most platforms.
