If you and/or Microsoft could add some sort of periodic regression tests
to the Boost testing matrix based on the work done to allow Boost
libraries to work with Windows Store and Windows Phone I am sure it
would be helpful to all Boost developers, especially to those whose
libraries are used by the Microsoft technologies. I am pretty sure that
one can create a regression test focusing on only a subset of libraries
needing testing in a particular environment ( Windows 8 and 8.1 in your
case with VC++ 11 and 12 I am guessing ).
