For my library Boost.Icl, which is the single new library addition of
1.46 it would be nice to have a point release. John Reid, who is
writing a wrapper application around ICL, detected a bunch of
compilation problems shortly before the release of 1.46.0 so I wasn't
able to merge those fixes into the release branch. Moreover there are
a couple of documentation flaws that were detected within the last few

The fixes of the bugs detected by John are already in the trunk.
Should more problems arise from the release of 1.46.0 I'd be eager to
fix them during the one week period.

So yes, from my perspective, it would be nice to have a point release
and I have improvements on the ICL that are already done or can be
done within one week.

For ICL I see no problem here.
