[boost] Does boost 1.70 officially support VS2019 14.2 compiler

Boost - Users mailing list
Hi,

Does boost 1.70 officially support VS2019 14.2 compiler ? 

Boost.org doesn't explicitly say that they does or doesn't support VS2019 14.2. Also they have 14.1 listed as a "primary compiler tested". 

Thanks
Alex

Hi Alex,
Should be, does VS2019 comply? :) I have not run tests with VS2019, and
maybe I should. But I use more than a dozen boost libs including the
tough spirit::x3 and have had no issues. If a regular here can't test,
I'll see about running it. vs142 is not far from vs141 and Microsoft
'seems' to be making progress. It should be safe to conclude?

Best, Dan.

Yes, they are making progress, but f.e. Folly [and I've seen some others passing by] does not compile with the Windows SDK 10.0.18362 [https://github.com/microsoft/vcpkg/issues/6670], so it's not all jolly.

Hi,

Does boost 1.70 officially support VS2019 14.2 compiler ? 

Boost.org doesn't explicitly say that they does or doesn't support VS2019 14.2. Also they have 14.1 listed as a "primary compiler tested". 

Boost.org doesn't explicitly  “officially support” any compiler.

 

(This is because NO compilers perfectly implement the imperfect and evolving C++ standard).

 

“What You See Is What You Get” applies instead.

 

You need to consult the test matrix results to get a good guide.

 

See https://www.boost.org/development/index.html

 

For example, the master summary will tell you what you will get next release

 

https://www.boost.org/development/tests/master/developer/summary.html

 

to see what works (and what doesn’t).

 

And test yourself.

 

Having said that, I don’t see many things that 14.2 ‘breaks’ (that is what worked with 14.1 also works for 14.2),

 

(Obviously the converse doesn’t apply as 14.2 handles new features).

 

So the TL;DR answer to your question is probably “Yes”.

 

HTH
