No, out of the configurations you mentioned, these ones are _not_ tested
linux-g++-32 Ubuntu 12.04 x86 32-bit Gcc 4.4
linux-g++-64 Ubuntu 12.04 x86 64-bit Gcc 4.4
win64-msvc2010 Windows 7 x86 64-bit
win32-MinGW Windows 7 x86 32-bit MinGW 4.4

However, many people used MinGW 4.4 for a long time with no problems.
