shared_ptr has recently been accepted into the Library Technical Report:

Since modifications to the TR draft require a full committee vote,
shared_ptr's interface will be much more stable now.

Binary compatibility is another story. 1.30.x, 1.31.x and 1.32.x will likely
be incompatible. But this is only an issue if you're shipping prebuilt
binaries, not source.
