Humble request from the "Front Lines" :)
Please continue supporting vc7. I am currently in the unenviable
position of BACK PORTING code that uses boost from vc7.1 to vc7. The
first thing to go was lambda. The funny thing is about 6 months ago I
was thinking it seemed silly to keep things like boost.bind around. But
now I am using that heavily instead of lambda.
My situation is we have 1.7 million lines of code we are trying to
upgrade. Unfortunately we have about 40-50 people who have had vc7
purchased for them by the project and we do not have the budget to
Vc7 is, in my opinion probably (unfortunately) still a compiler many
folks are stuck with.
