I have to agree with Robert. We will be on older tool chains for the foreseeable future. We have a on-going need for a
portable supported C++03 atomic library and have been eagerly waiting for the boost.atomic to be released as a boost library.
It's disappointing that boost.atomic (as well as boost.lockfree) have been delayed for so long.
