My mistake, I think I promised to apply that, but never got around to it.

> MSC_VER <= 1200 -> MSC_VER < 1300
> MSC_VER == 1200 -> MSC_VER < 1300
> MSC_VER >= 1300 -> MSC_VER > 1200

That last one is wrong, I assume you meant to type:

MSC_VER >= 1200 -> MSC_VER > 1200

The autolink changes look OK, but do they they match the names that bjam
produces (assuming you can compile at all with bjam with eVC++)?

The changes to visualc.hpp have some misplaced #errors in there, in fact I
don't think we should be adding #errors at all just because we can't define
a meaningful BOOST_COMPILER macro (the macro is only for informative use
after all).

I spotted a mistake in

RCS file: /cvsroot/boost/boost/boost/mpl/aux_/numeric_op.hpp,v


should be:



RCS file: /cvsroot/boost/boost/more/microsoft_vcpp.html,v

The additions:

+<td>Microsoft Visual C++ 7.0 </td>
+<td>Microsoft Visual C++ 7.1 </td>

Shouldn't be there (since the document describes bugs found in VC6 only).

Other than that the changes all look OK to me.

Doug, is it too close to release to apply blanket changes like this? I'm
guessing that if they cause any problems they should show up PDQ.
