I was expecting more on the issues associated with ADL here but didn't find
any such discussion in this portion of the documentation. I've hunted about
a bit and haven't found mention elsewhere, but that doesn't confirm that
it's not there. :)

I'm not sure if your refering to the documentation or to the actual

I did find that #define'ing BOOST_NO_ARGUMENT_DEPENDENT_LOOKUP in each
translation unit where serialization functions/methods are instantiated
solve my std::set<std::string> problems as described in my other recent
postings. Also this resolves issues with VC7.1 compiler fatal errors due to

So is using BOOST_NO_ARGUMENT_DEPENDENT_LOOKUP with VC7.1 a general
requirement? Does this have effect on other boost libraries?

Just to let you know, with the above #def I've successfully converted my
application to use boost 1.32.0 from 1.31.0 + serialization20. The other
change was ensuring that all my serialization methods used const unsigned
int version arguments. I think I had some without the const and without the
unsigned from earlier versions of the library.

Great job on the library and many thanks for all of your efforts.

Thanks, Jeff
