Looking at the regressions against 1.30.2 for Win32 and Linux from and, there are a bunch of
regressions. See below.

Before looking at the detailed list, bear in mind that almost all of the
Linux failures are new gcc 2.95.3 fails. My guess is that if type traits
could be fixed on gcc 2.95.3, many of the other regressions on that
platform would disappear.

On the Win32 tests, the regressions are more varied. The Date-time and
Regex libraries need a bit of attention, but I'm hoping all Boost
developers will scan the list for regressions in their own libraries.

Config: Linux gcc 2.95.3 two tests
Conversion: Linux Intel 7.1 lexical_cast_test
CRC: Linux gcc 2.95.3 crc_test
Date-time: Win32 Borland 5.6.4 and Codewarrior
Disjnt sets: Linux gcc 2.95.3
Dyn bit set: Linux gcc 2.95.3
Filesystem: Win32 Borland/Intel (But not reproduced on Beman's Win32
Format: Win32 Borland 5.5.1, Codewarrior, VC++ 6.0
Function: Linux gcc 2.95.3 three tests
              Win32 Codewarrior function_n_test
Graph: Linux gcc 2.95.3
Iterator: All platforms failing iterator_categories test
Multi-array: Linux gcc 2.95.3 scattered tests
              Win32 VC++ 6.0, 11 tests
Lambda: Linux gcc 2.95.3
ublas: Win32 Borland 5.5.1, all tests, 5.6.4 2 tests,
                    Codewarrior 4 tests, VC++7.0 1 test.
Optional: Win32 optional_test on Borland 5.5.1
PP: Linux gcc 2.95.3, 3.1, 3.3 list test
Random: Linux gcc 2.95.3
Regex: Win32 Borland 5.5.1, 5.6.4, Codewarrior. posix_api_check
                    several compilers
Signals: Linux gcc 2.95.3 all tests
              Win32 Borland/Intel (But not reproduced on Beman's Win32
Smart Ptr: Win32 VC++ 7.0 shared_ptr_test
Test: Linux gcc 2.95.3 many tests. errors_handling_test all
Thread: Linux gcc 2.95.3 all tests
Tokenizer: Linux gcc 2.95.3 examples
Tuple: Linux gcc 2.95.3 all tests
              Win32 Borland 5.6.4 tuple_test_bench
Type traits: Linux gcc 2.95.3 all tests
              Win32 VC++ 6.0,7.0 type_with_alignment_test
Utility: Linux gcc 2.95.3 six tests

Good news: About 40 Linux and 100 Win32 tests that failed for the 1.30.2
release are now passing!
