Subject: Re: [boost] [iostreams] 1.41 gzip filter regression

In my case, the iostreams gzip bugs have prevented me from upgrading
to 1.41. It seems that in most releases I encounter gzip bugs and give
me a bad feeling about the iostreams library. Probably the library
doesn't have a maintainer but I see in the 1.41 release notes that new
features were added.

I addition to what has been reported I get this error:

/home/code/boost_1_41_0/boost/iostreams/read.hpp:191: error: 'class
>' has no member named 'putback'
