Subject: [boost] Upcoming changes to _MSC_VER

This is a heads up.
I spoke with Beman at CppCon about this: the upcoming release of Visual
Studio (VS "15") has some changes to how _MSC_VER will be defined at every
(future) update. These changes are already implemented in 'VS "15" Preview
5'. The full details are here https://blogs.msdn.

Internal testing showed that some components of Boost source code needed a
few changes to use inequalities instead of equalities with _MSC_VER.


PS: The formal documentation of _MSVC_LANG is coming.
