There was an extensive discussion about this on the testing list a couple of
months ago, when I started running release mode tests. Certain things break in
release mode (compare your release mode results to the debug mode results ---
there are lots more red boxes). The compromise we came to was that I would run
release mode tests, but tag all the toolsets with ~release so they could be
identified as such, and failures would not appear in the regression report

Historically, release mode tests have not been run, so release mode failures
are not necessarily "regressions" --- the same test might have failed in
release mode with previous boost releases.

My user-config.jam is:

using python : 2.5 : c:/local/python25 ;

using msvc : 6.5 : c:/progra~1/micros~3/vc98/bin/cl.exe ;
using msvc : all ;
using gcc : 3.4.0 : c:/local/mingw/bin/g++.exe ;
using borland : 5.8.2 : c:/progra~1/borland/bds/4.0/bin/bcc32.exe ;

using msvc : 6.5~release : c:/progra~1/micros~3/vc98/bin/cl.exe ;
using msvc : 7.1~release : c:/local/vc71/bin/cl.exe ;
using msvc : 8.0express~release : c:/progra~1/MID05A~1/vc/bin/cl.exe ;
using gcc : 3.4.0~release : "c:/local/mingw/bin/g++.exe" ;
using borland : 5.8.2~release : c:/progra~1/borland/bds/4.0/bin/bcc32.exe ;
