I posted this some days ago in c.announce, but no one seem to have seen 
it, so I'm repeating:

Reading the page http://www.digitalmars.com/ one is informed that 
present C/C++ compiler for Win32 is 8.50.

However, going to the version link in the "Latest C and C++ compiler 
version info." bullet mentions version 8.51 (according to changelog 
issued January second of this year).

Was the change considered too small to warrant an update in the main web 
page?

Somewhat extended beta program this one! Does C++ get any love at all these days? Note: new version of Boost is about to go into beta, and I believe that the existing compiler won't work with current versions of the Microsoft SDK, both of which cause problems. James
