Thrust error on min_element or max_element

I was compiling some old CUDA code with a recent version of the CUDA SDK. I got these errors on Thrust methods:

error: namespace thrust has no member max_element
error: namespace thrust has no member min_element


In recent versions of CUDA SDK, these Thrust methods have been moved to the extrema.h header file. These errors will go away if you include the thrust/extrema.h header file.

Tried with: CUDA SDK 7.5 and Ubuntu 14.04
