Subject: [boost] Status of Visual Studio 2017 support

In the mid of 2016, PR "Add support for Visual Studio 15" [1]
was merged into develop and eventually into master branch.
Although the patch was released in Boost 1.63.0,
the release notes [2] 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?
