If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

The old behavior was found inconsistent with the way how physical quantities with units are passed in Geant4 code in general. Unit is always required.
So the meaning of the unit (the last argument provided) in the call
analysisManager->CreateH1("B_spectrum", "Boron Spectrum", 1000, 0, 2*GeV, "GeV");
is really the unit in which the values will be filled and displayed in the histogram. This way is also more suitable when you pass a value of a physicical quantity; eg. myDetector->GetLength():
analysisManager->CreateH1("myH1", "Title", 100, 0, myDetector->GetLength(), "cm");
Note that when using the UI commands, the values passed are interpreted with the unit which is provided. So the equivalent of your setting is:
/analysis/h1/create "B_spectrum" "Boron Spectrum" 1000 0 2 GeV
When checking this, I realized that a part of the fix was not correctly propagated from the development version in the patch03, due to which passing units with create/set commands does not work properly. I have attach a tar file with a fix in the bug report system:
Please, take this file if you are using the analysis UI commands with units. If not, you don't need it.
