Looks like Variadic templates are still broken in VC++. Following code
works on Сlang and GCC:

template <typename... Ts, int... Is>
std::string operator()(const std::tuple<Ts...>& tup, indices<Is...>)
    std::ostringstream ost;
    ost << "( ";
    (void) (int []){0, (ost << printer()( std::get<Is>(tup) ), 0)... };
    ost << ") ";
    return ost.str();

But VC++ 14.0 gives a compilation error:

..\libs\variant\test\recursive_variant_test.cpp(88): error C2059:
syntax error: '{'

for a full test case.

Another failure is in

..\libs\variant\test\variant_reference_test.cpp(88): error C2784:
'boost::add_reference<T>::type wknd_get(boost::variant<T,> &,int)'

Unfortunately could not report those issues to,
web site does not respond.

Great thanks to both of you!
