Your timing is quite interesting. Just this morning we ended up with
another crop of inexplicable VC8 failures (where it appears that the
linker might be crashing). In response, I've removed it from the list
of supported compilers; see the explanation in the new index.htm for
the RC_1_33_0 branch (and the release candidate).
