A new regression engine for HP-UX acc has
just entered (FFT-aCC), and the success rate
is surprisingly high, given that:

1. The compiler has made it very late to the
Boost 1.33 scene --some complex new libs, like
Boost.Parameter didn't have previous exposure
to the compiler AFAIK and yet they work

2. Previous versions of aCC were notoriously
buggy --for instance, Dave&Aleksey's MPL book
lists HP aCC 03.55 as a lost case. Now,
+90% of the MPL tests pass!

3. Many many test cases fail for the same single
reason (more on this on a later post), so
the actual sucess rate could be even higher.

So, what's new with aCC 06.00 (I think this is
the version no)? Did they switch to an EDG-based
core or something? Anyone familiar with it?
In any case, kudos to the devteam.
