interesting smile.png yeah boost is greatly outdated by c++11, so it is super great if you have a recent compiler that supports it.

I wouldn't call it "outdated by c++11".

 

The standard is still very new in terms of compiler life cycles.


There's a wiki showing how much of the c++11 standard is implementedin a few major compilers.  You will note that as of today NONE of the major compilers fully support the standard.  GCC is close, but still not complete as of today.

 

The GCC compiler is a bit of an oddball because most of the features were proven in experimental branches of the compiler.  The last of the major language features are still in the 4.8.1 branch.  You can get it in the latest nightly builds, but 4.8.1 won't be supported mainstream until June or so.  The N2670 changes won't make it in that build, so you are looking at close to the end of the year before all the major features are supported.
