Hi everyone,
What is the current status of our vc2012 support?

I was working on updating our OSL libraries and discovered reasons again 
why we should abandon vc2008 finally... (see 

The question now is, what is missing or blocking us from doing the change?

* All libraries are there and Blender works fine as far as I remember?
* We'd need to update to CUDA 5.5 I guess? Or is vc2012 working with 
CUDA 5.0 as well?

Does any developer here already use vc2012 on a (daily) basis and can 
confirm that Blender is stable when built with it?

Best regards,
