Subject: [Boost-users] Stumped!

The code I write needs to compile under several older versions
of Boost, as I'm sure is very common.

I have been tripped up by using const_pointer_cast, which apparently
doesn't exist very far into the past.

As far as I can see, implementing this functionality is not trivial, because
it's easy to make a mess of the reference counts in shared pointers.

I'd like to know when this functionality was introduced, but with the older
documentation offline at the moment I'm a bit scuppered. I thought of
downloading old versions from source forge, but find there's a gap
between 1.33.1 and 1.38

Any ideas how I can find out?
