What does it mean 'a library is C++14 only'?

Does that mean I'm allowed to use only features which have been added by
Or does that mean a library is allowed to use all features defined in the
C++14 standard?

If the former, then am I still allowed to use 'int' and 'for'?
If the latter, Boost is already C++14 only (afaict, no library uses C++17
features yet).

Go figure. So let's drop this nonsense of declaring something C++14 only.
