This reminds me of a question I had:
# Known toolset versions, in order of preference.
.known-versions = 14.0 12.0 11.0 10.0 10.0express 9.0 9.0express 8.0
7.1toolkit 7.0 6.0 14.1 ;
We put 14.1 last; is this what we want in the release, or was this a
temporary measure until the issues with 14.1 are sorted out, as they appear
now to have been?
Because traditionally, we place the newest version first; and on a VS 2017
installation with both 141 and 140 toolsets, the above will (as far as I can
see) pick and build with 14.0 if no toolset is given, which may be
