No specific plans, no.

In general, they are released when all of Boost is ready. I think it
would be a *really* good idea for Boost to do at least one minor
version release shortly after any major version release. Now that we
have a reasonable testing strategy it should be relatively easy.
Boost 1.30.0 went out with several bugs IIRC.

Until we get our act together, I would suggest you supply people with
a Boost patch. Use "BOOST_DEDUCED_TYPENAME" instead of "typename" so
you don't break VC6. Sorry,
