The MSDeveloper magazine, listed that MS has fixed the error messages from
using templates, and updated the library to be fully standard compliant. I'm
not sure how they managed it without partial specialization, but that was
the claim. They also claim to have fixed some compiler bugs. The inside
rumor is that the code base is very brittle and needs to be re-written, and
I too am stuck using MS for reasons partly political and partly platform
related. Therefore I have used gcc to do my C++ library development work.
While I can't benefit from this code at work, I am at least helping the C++
world, and advancing my own skills.
My personal annoyance with MS is that they released C#. I would have
preferred the effort had gone to fixing C++.
