OK, I did:

C:\...\boost-release>svn log -r 84902:HEAD --search dlwalker

Merged [85417], [85418], and [85434] from trunk to release, fixing show-stoppers
 for Boost.Rational, like #5855 and a C++11 update for some test code

Looking at those change-sets:


* Added "lowest" and "max_digits10," members of std::numeric_limits added in C++11,
  to the unit-test code. Needed since Boost.Test refers to one of them when
  compiled in C++11 mode.
* Changed initialization of some internal variables to something that cannot be a
  narrowing conversion, which fixes issue #5855. Needed since narrowing conversions
  are an error in C++11.

You can use different wording; that's just a summary. Those two points are for the
first two change-sets; the third change-set modifies the second. (MSVC doesn't
accept "not" as a substitute for "!".)
