Although GCC 4.8 is labelled as C++11 compatible, the reasons are:

  • GCC 4.8 is buggy enough to prevent reasonable use of Boost.MP11
  • GCC 4.8 is dying

Closes #282
@mloskot mloskot force-pushed the mloskot:ml/drop-support-for-gcc48 branch from 25390f1 to f57c769 Apr 28, 2019
The driver built with GCC 4.9 is failing at run-time
on docker images with newer GCC (e.g. GCC 5.x) with:

   ./b2: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./b2)
   ./b2: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by ./b2)
   Exited with code 1
