I'm sorry,

I understand that with my argumentation I've given the wrong idea of what I

I read that post from Jim Bosch and I thought he knew something more about
Boost Python development.

Then I completely agree that a library is absolutely not dead also if it
does not support C++ 11. Personally, I won't be able to use C++ 11 for
years starting from now.

I would simply like to be re-ensured that Boost Python development is going
on, because I like this library a lot.

Best regards to all.
