These are new features and really shouldn’t be added right now. Boost is on a regular release cycle so lets ensure we get these in, and tested, for 1.66.

> Should we merge before the 1.65 or make it a bug fix and merge after the release (unless there is a opposition) and let those change mature in master for some time (but still be able to work on develop, which I do not fell comfortable doing so with so many differences between develop and master).

I see that your recent changes have now broken develop for clang-linux-3.8.1, and gcc-4.7.2. So I guess Boost is dropping support for gcc-4.7.x, or was that unintentional on your part Alain? Can you look at that and see if we can either revert the broken develop change, or fix it so it’s still buildable with gcc-4.7?
