Me too, actually, along with 3.2.  I used to test with 3.0.4 as well,
until a Cygwin upgrade broke my 3.0.4 installation.

Yeah, it's much better, and it will probably make a big difference to
you if you're writing new C++ code but it probably won't affect your
Python-wrapping experience much.  At least, I've seen relatively few
places where a 2.95-specific problems cropped up with Boost.Python.
