Boost and Sun Studio 12
By atanasyan on Jan 30, 2008
The latest released version of Boost 1.34.1 can be compiled under 32-bit mode by Sun Studio 12 from scratch without necessity to apply any additional patches.
If you want to use Boost 1.34.1 under 64-bit mode you still have to apply a small fix to Boost build script.
Upcoming Boost 1.35 can be compiled by Sun Studio 12 under both 32/64-bit mode without any patches.

As for advantages over Studio 11 and/or gcc:
- Sun Studio 12 has a better back-end than Sun Studio 11 and g++ so customers gain performance improvement.
- Sun Studio 12 better conforms to C++ standard than Sun Studio 11.
