Boost is mentioned by name:

"Microsoft’s goal is to have a ‘competitively compliant’ compiler – meaning
it won’t be 100% compliant. There are a couple of features of the ANSI/ISO
standard (for instance the ‘export’ keyword as applied to template classes)
that won’t be implemented because they are considered by Microsoft to be
obscure and, at this stage, theoretical. Microsoft is however working to
ensure that Visual C++ will compile the most popular libraries such as
Boost, Blitz, Loki and a fully compliant version of STL. The emphasis is on
a level of compliance that allows popular libraries to be compiled, not 100%
