Thanks John, I noticed the compiler seemed fairly instable when I last
tried to use it and gave up. It also can't handle multi-threaded code
at the moment which means testing on any of our 'real' code is out of
the question.

I have been quite encouraged just to see some of the libraries such as
lambda and the preferred syntax for function working correctly,
hopefully they are an indication that Borland is on the right track with

Do you know if the CVS changes made so far will be in the 1.31 release,
or was the branch made before they were checked in?
