Yes, C++11 is used extensively in new code and is supported by GCC 4.8.
Older devices are less likely to get any new features, thus support for
older compilers with new versions of Boost is probably not needed.
In my reply I was specifically referring to the idea of making a C++14
Boost 2.0 subset/fork for the reason to support *the entire* C++
community, which seemed a bit contradictory from my point of view.

Thanks for that suggestion, but permanent network connection and HTTP
are not available at the moment.
