have changed over the last 30 days at the link below. If Wiki editors provide a

2) Dave & Vladimir have been using the Wiki extensively to discuss/document

3) Toon added the Installing Boost page which provides a brief set of
instructions for using JAM and provides pointers to pre-compile JAM executables

4) Stephen C. added a page on common compiler errors with function/bind with
