Hi there,

first of all thanks for a great beta release. I have tested it with a fairly
complex application of mine, making heavy use of serialization (the core
dumps reported in a recent thread on the user's list seem to be gone -
great, thanks Robert :-), boost.threads, boost.asio, boost.bind, and smart
pointers. I have so far run into *no major* difficulties, but will of
course report issues as they arise.

A small, but from my point of view still significant, nuisance is that bug
report 2091 doesn't appear to have been fixed, although it is easy to cure
with a change of

typedef dst_adjustment_offsets<time_duration_type> dst_adjustment_offsets;


typedef boost::date_time::dst_adjustment_offsets<time_duration_type>

in line 161 of <BOOSTROOT>/boost/date_time/tz_db_base.hpp .

Alternatively it is possible to rename the typedef in line 161 and in the 2
or so subsequent occurances.

In the absence of this fix, I need to patch Boost on many recent Linux
patforms (at least a current Debian Lenny and OpenSUSE 11, but likely
others as well, if they have a g++ 4.3.x Compiler).

Best Regards,
