And Boost is not getting any smaller, neither the amount of supported
platforms is... So how long will it be from 1.34 to 1.35?

IMO there exist a real problem which needs to be addressed somehow. Any

I think there are two major bottlenecks. First, the compiler availability.
If people could try things on different compilers, and see the results
before committing to CVS, much less things would get broken. Maybe some
service similar to comeau online could be established for other compilers?

Second, I think Boost is becomming too big. Maybe splitting it into parts
needs to be considered? For example Boost.Core would have a separate
release schedule, and the rest of Boost would be developed against the
stable core?
