I understand. We were late in the game for 1.34.

I realize, that no HP-UX - specific patches will be added to 1.34 at
this point, but we'll need to continue to test RC_1_34_0 branch to get
understanding what the problems with this release are and what
workaround(s) we can recommend to the customer(s).

We'll also be running tests against CVS HEAD to be better prepared
for 1.35.

Hello Boris, thank you for your contribution!

This is correct: release view only shows required platforms.

In any case, you cannot ask for HP-UX/aCC6 to be promoted
to "required platform" status for Boost 1.34, as the list
has just been closed:

you might want to propose it in Boost 1.35.

I don't think there's any estimated date yet. What seems
likely, though, is that the release procedure will undergo
some major changes, like switching to SVN and trying a
different release model hopefully guaranteeing an always-ready
release branch, see

This scheme implies that regression tests are run continuously,
not only when the release is approaching, at least for required
