Good progress, well done!

Instead of using make_pair, just directly call the pair constructor in
C++98 and C++11:
return std::pair<std::vector<key_type>, Value&>(get_key(), vnode->value);

Move constructors and operators are a good addition, they can be added at
any time. Administration related tasks look more significant right now:
* Boost folders structures changed since 2013. Rearrange folders like it is
described here: . Also
you may take a look into the to see
how the folders must look like. There in Installation section of Readme
you'll find a simple way to install new library/trie into the existing
boost installation.
* When it's done, try to setup autotesting, using this manual: . This will give you a
simple way to auto test code on Linux platform.

Another significant and hard task:
* trie_node structure looks too heavy: there are too many member variables.
Try to simplify trie_node and value_list_node structures. Think of a
possible optimizations of the trie_node structure for
For example all the sets do not require values, so pointers to value list
nodes can be removed from trie_set in that case.

P.S.: I'll take a look into the "boost::tries::trie<int,
int>::const_iterator it = t.cbegin();" issue on Monday or Tuesday.
