Subject: [boost] [variant] Warning: variadic templates in boost::variant
From: Antony Polukhin (antoshkka_at_[hidden])

Development version of Boost.Variant library now uses C++11 variadic
templates when possible.
This leads to more compact binaries, more readable compiler error messages
and faster compilation times.
* breaks ABI (now variant is declared as `template <typename T0,
typename... TN> class variant`)
* breaks user code that was explicitly using BOOST_VARIANT_LIMIT_TYPES
Code that was using BOOST_VARIANT_ENUM_PARAMS and
BOOST_VARIANT_ENUM_SHIFTED_PARAMS macro *must* work correctly without any
To disable variadic templates usage in variant define
When all the tests will pass successfully changes will be merged to master
branch, so there is a high chance that variadic templates will be supported
by Boost 1.56.
In case of appearance of hard to fix variadic templates errors in Boost
libraries dependent on Boost.Variant - report them in this letter and I'll
help in resolving issues.
