Subject: [boost] Coming up on 1.57 release date - get your fixes in

We’ll be closing the master branch tomorrow (Thursday) for the 1.57.0 release.
Changes not in by then will not go into the release.

Also, what issues in the beta have not been addressed?

I believe that these have been merged.

I believe that this has been merged.

Thread fixes have been merged.

I do not know if the patches described in have been merged.

This does NOT appear to have been fixed

> boost serialization is still broken(said so: ) and to date i do know no workaround to get my library to work on fx Arch Linux without telling users to rebuild with boost 1.55 (or sending them a saved package from my system…)

I do not know what the status of this is; but there have been no commits to range/master in October.

Just this morning we received a report of Boost.PP failing on VS 2013.
Have I missed any of the beta issues?
