I setup nightly builds for 64 bit ARM some time ago. The results are available on this test dashboard.

Except some failures in unsupported modules everything looks OK for that one.

I also remember testing ppc64 and ppc64le systems very recently with success, I'll rerun them tomorrow.

The sad truth is that I'm not really helping to test Eigen releases on various compilers, but that those are the compilers I and my colleagues have to use. (Maybe we could avoid it, and we certainly can just continue to use Eigen 3.2.x.)

I think I understand now how booost.mpl/boost.type_traits writes those has_binary_operator, has_unary_operator, and has_nullary_operator traits. (The _expression_ in sizeof calls those operators, and some tricks ensure that an operator operator with "void" return type is found if the correct operator doesn't exist). But I won't find time to (try to) write them before tomorrow afternoon.

Just a quick bit cheerleading, especially directed to Gael and Christoph: the quality of support that you're offering here is amazing, doing a Eigen 3.2.10 now is a great way to support users ahead of the upcoming 3.3 release, and supporting gcc 4.4 is already very generous already given it's 7.5 years old.

Regarding GCC we do only claim to support version 4.4 and newer, so I agree that we should not waste time on that.

Eigen 3.3 will be released very soon, and we encourage everybody to
already move to the 3.3-rc1 version.

Thanks for the great work. I just tested the default branch with MSVC2010,
gcc 4.8.4, gcc 4.4.6 and gcc 4.1.2. Only gcc 4.1.2 fails:

Eigen/src/Core/util/Meta.h:410: error: no matching function for call to
Eigen::internal::scalar_constant_op<double>::operator()(long int, long
int) const
Eigen/src/Core/util/Meta.h:401: error: no matching function for call to
Eigen::internal::scalar_constant_op<double>::operator()(long int) const
Eigen/src/Core/util/Meta.h:392: error: no matching function for call to
Eigen::internal::scalar_identity_op<double>::operator()() const

I tried to fix it, but the obvious trivial fixes didn't work. I will have
to lookup how boost.mpl (or rather boost/type_traits/details/has:binary_operator.hpp)
does it. At least that is my current plan. I will try to post a patch with
a fix today.
