Heh, few weeks to get new version. With BCB it took years and years and the result is still miserable. Anyway, I tried few tests and some problems still remain. I'll look into them. Hopefully Arjan Knepper will generate a new status table. /Pavel

My impression is that Borland has just given up.

Thanks.
 Hopefully Arjan Knepper will generate a new
 status table.

I hope we get at least a couple more greens out of this one!

With 5.8.x they fixed some backend errors. They claim they work on reaching Boost compatibility. /Pavel

I had thought they were using EDG's front end - isn't that boost compatible?

I believe the situation is: * They attempted to create brand new C++ compiler with EDG frontend, named CBX. It failed in the market and is now abandoned. * Later, they resurrected work on BCB compiler, fixing some codegen bugs and releasing it as 5.8.0. Three updates followed. Borland/DevCo/whatever the name plan to continue with BCB and explicitly mention Boost compatibility as one of targets. /Pavel
