Here are some quotes regarding the new version of C++ builder from Feb
'05 (from http://bdn.borland.com/article/0,1410,32958,00.html):
"We've done some work on conformance for Boost and for ACE. We're going
to specifically target boost and some customer complaints. We won't be
100% ANSI compliant"
And they state that the product will now use DinkumWare STL rather than
STLPort which should help a little too.
While this isn't concrete proof, it hopefully is a sign that things will
improve with the new release. But only time will tell if they follow
through on this.
