Borland never fixed about 10 compiler bugs I reported to them over 4
years ago on their on-line big reporting system called Quality Central,
most taken from Boost compiler regression tests run years ago and a
number of them blindingly obvious and simple to understand. One report
was a bug I reported directly to them over 6 years ago even before
Quality Central was created and which I re-reported to them in Quality
Central 4 years ago.
As a claim has been made one one of their NGs that they "only" have 100
or so bugs listed but not fixed from reports that have occured in the
pasr, I checked all the cases I had reported and found that NOT A SINGLE
ONE has ever been fixed according to Quality Central. So I would very
surprised if all of a sudden they have a largely C++ standard compiler
in a "new" product.
