I have a concern here that Borland BCB6 was being tested by Metacomm,
but their test results have not been uploaded since the 'freeze
results' call a few weeks ago. Likewise, no-one else has been able to
pick up the strain for the same reason.
This was supposed to be the last supported release for BCB6, just as
with MSVC6, and I would hate to lose it at the last minute.
I have been patiently waiting for the regression runs to sort
themselves out before chasing up a set of BCB6 results - I will
re-install a copy and run the test myself if necessary - but it seems I
can no longer afford to wait.
For reference, BCB6 and BCB2006 were very similar in fails at the last
count, with BCB6 being the main soure of expect-fail markups. Once the
current Spirit/serialization issues are sorted out I do not anticipate
