#13565: Compilation issue with property_tree on VS2017 15.7

Milestone: Boost 1.68.0 | Component: property_tree
  Version: Boost 1.67.0 | Severity: Showstopper
 Keywords: |
 The new Visual Studio 2017 15.7 with following compiler settings:

 Conformance mode: Yes(/permissive-)
 C++ Language Standard: ISO C++17 Standard (/std:c++17)

 generates following error:

 Error C3203 'iterator': unspecialized class template can't be used as
 a template argument for template parameter 'Iterator', expected a real
         : public boost::reverse_iterator<iterator>

 during the compilation of the following code:

   std::string value = { "[GENERAL]\n"
                         "MyValue=42" };

   namespace bpt = boost::property_tree;
   bpt::ptree tree;
     std::istringstream input(value);
     bpt::read_ini(input, tree); // Parse the INI-File into the property
   catch (...)

   int const v = tree.get<int>("GENERAL.MyValue", 0);

 It looks like it has something todo with the deprecation of std::iterator
 in C++17. In case the Conformance mode is switched to "No", the code
 compiles without any errors. It is also dependent on project configuration
 and include order, since my first try to create an isolated project for
 demonstration didn't resulted in the same error. But I didn't invest much
 time for it.

 Here is my proposal for the solution of the issue: Prefix the template
 parameter to make them fully qualified.

 Change lines 112 and 122:
     class basic_ptree<K, D, C>::reverse_iterator
         : public boost::reverse_iterator<iterator>

     class basic_ptree<K, D, C>::const_reverse_iterator
         : public boost::reverse_iterator<const_iterator>

     class basic_ptree<K, D, C>::reverse_iterator
         : public boost::reverse_iterator<basic_ptree<K, D, C>::iterator>

     class basic_ptree<K, D, C>::const_reverse_iterator
         : public boost::reverse_iterator<basic_ptree<K, D,

 This resolves the issue on my side.
