A simple Allocator, similar to the one provided by the C++11 standard (§, used in a std::vector does compile in release but not in debug with VC2012 RC.

It looks like at some point, the additional machinery used in debug mode try to use directly the construct() function, which is not present in the interface of SimpleAllocator. It should use std::allocator_trait<SimpleAllocator>::construct() instead.

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, and the fix will be available in VC12 (the release after VC11 = VS 2012).

Additionally, the STL has received a separate fix, so you don't need to provide the nested rebind struct (C++11 still requires you to provide the templated constructor for rebinding).

I apologize for the delayed reply here - it is my personal policy to reply to all resolved Connect bugs reported against the STL, but I lost track of this one.

Note: Connect doesn't notify me about comments. If you have any further questions, please E-mail me.
