Subject: [boost] [property_tree] XML parser broken in 1.39.0

Calling boost::property_tree::xml_parser::read_xml() to parse a XML file
and populate a property_tree doesn't work anymore in Boost 1.39.0 (at
least not in Visual C++ 2008). The compiler error I see is:

boost\iterator\iterator_adaptor.hpp(230) : error C2027: use of undefined

The property_tree headers include
boost\spirit\home\classic\iterator\position_iterator.hpp which includes
boost\iterator\iterator_adaptor.hpp. I also see this warning:

Warning: This header is deprecated. Please use:
Warning: This header is deprecated. Please use:

It looks like as if a change in Boost.Spirit or Boost.Iterator broke the
XML parser. Does Boost.PropertyTree have a maintainer who can look into


PS: As it turns out it's broken in Boost 1.38.0, too. With 1.36.0 I don't
get a compile error (1.37.0 I don't have installed and can't test).
