Well, I only use bcc32 and for now, I'm happy to stick with 1.30.2.
I'll back port any new features I need myself (mainly from
filesystem/thread if any attractive features come in) and I may move to
1.31.0 but I've run into other problems using this at the moment so I
can only speak for myself about bcc32, but as spirit has already dropped
support for bcc32 in 1.31.0 (spirit-1.8 IIRC) then it means boost can't
be used 'out-of-the-box' anyway, and requires still having 1.30.2 around

But the new compiler is in preview (bccx 6.0) and already works with
quite a bit of boost (thanks to John Maddock) and there hasn't been a
word yet, but it has been in preview for about 5 months now and the talk
was of the next version of CBX (hopefully with the final product int)
due 2-3 quarter this year, so we may be able to get Borland support back
  in the not too distant future (without all the work-arounds currently
