Basically your comment above if I recall meant like 200+
tests were originally failing. Beman did some nice work,
and as he said we gave him some internal patches too, and
things are now like 85% ok. There's some 20 tests in
dispute over windows.h issues, and I've begun a thread
in .build to discuss it. Then there's another 5-10
tests that I will be looking into deeper, as well as
another 10 or so that look like a lookup problem in the
boost code itself due to either inaccessability or dependent
name or something like that, so a boost'er folk should look
at it. So it will only get better from here,
and hopefully most other tests pass in the next few days.
Anyway, I sent another beta to Beman in the past 24 hours or so,
and as soon as that's in sync, I'd be glad to provide it
to any other existing licensees a day or so after that.
If it matters, we're both so far working with VC++ 7.0 backends
on the tests. Other backend may or may not have other issues.
