Subject: [boost] Status of Visual Studio 2017 support

In the mid of 2016, PR "Add support for Visual Studio 15" 
was merged into develop and eventually into master branch.
Although the patch was released in Boost 1.63.0,
the release notes  are silent about that update.
That is about Boost.Build, which I assume is the first to be updated to
support a new toolkit.
I haven't checked current commits history of individual libraries.
Status of VS2017 support in individual libraries may be at different stages.
Could anyone clarify any of these points:
- Does Boost.Build in Boost 1.63.0 officially support VS2017?
- Is there any schedule to fully support VS2017 in Boost 1.64.0?
- Or, is that left at discretion of maintainers of individual libraries
and VS2017 support might be reached gradually over several releases
instead of in a single shot?
