Those should be targets for the final 1.33.1 release, but I'm not sure if we
really need them for the *first* Beta release.

I'd like to add a few more issues to be resolved for the final 1.33.1 as

Config: support for EVC++
(, I've applied this
to the main HEAD branch apparently without ill effect, so I think it's safe
for the release branch also. Ulrich first raised this months ago, so I feel
we owe him this one!

Regex: I'd like to try and fix lookbehind assertions
(, it means adding at
least one new API in order to fix this though, so it's borderline new

Threads: deadlocks in readwrite_mutex
(, assuming there
isn't a mistake in the test case then we could really use someone to look
into this as a priority, a threading lib that deadlocks is not too good an

Threads: memory leak, this need documenting and explaining if it isn't
already, and if we can't get rid of it (I suspect we can't).

MPL: the has_xxx boilerplate is failing with vacpp
which causes all the regex tests to fail with that compiler. I'm pretty
sure this *did* work at one point, and the error messages seem rather
strange, so any ideas on this one would be welcome.


That's all for now,
