From: mark pashley (mark.pashley_at_[hidden])

Rvalue references and Move semantics are a major C++11 feature that can
significantly speed up code by reducing unnecessary copies. The STL has been
updated to use this new feature when a c++11/0x compiler is used (e.g. gcc

I stumbled across this ticket :
which discusses the addition of move semantics to boost::optional.

Is there any news on when the boost::optional library will support move
semantics? I am primarily interested in using this library with a c++11/0x
compiler (e.g. GCC 4.6).
