I am a maintainer of Boost.Optional. Was on vacation so couldn't hear you.
I just verified that your code example works with 1.55 on VS2010, so it is
a regression. I will not be able to have a look at it for the next couple
of days. I would like to determine why it even works on 1.55. The
converting constructor from arbitrary U is also explicit in 1.55, so it
works because of some sequence of conversions that I cannot figure out
If you wish to submit a patch you can do it via GitHub at
https://github.com/boostorg/optional. I can see and act upon the pull
