Based upon your messages, it's not clear to me what this "fix" does.
Does it make it so that serialization in 1.44 will be able to read
binary archives from 1.41 or does it make it so that serialization in
1.44 will be able to read binary archives from 1.42/43? Or somehow
both? Is there a trac issue?
At my company we were considering upgrading to boost 1.43 but this may
cause us to hold off. Thanks,
