> I do not have access to the latest msvc2015 right now. Could you apply
 your patch and run all the tests from boost_root/libs/variant/test. Just
 go to that folder and run ..\..\..\b2 from it.

 I'll try to do this as soon as posible

 time :) Unfortunately it's impossible to enable variadics for _MSC_VER ==
 1900, because there's no known to me way to distinguish vs2015 update 2
 from older versions (update 1 and before) and Boost must be able to run on
 any compiler.

 May be you can try _MSC_FULL_VER instead of _MSC_VER

 task and nobody has time or will to do it right now. However pull requests
 are always welcomed ;)

 Yeah it's great job to do this. But i heard new standard will contain
