Looks the same as RC1 for me on Visual Studio.
* b2 with a relative prefix (and relative libdir/includedir) doesn't work
* Can't create libraries for bzip2 and zlib (showstopper? anyone else
seeing this?)
Other than that things look good.

toolset arch compile Link Execute
msvc-10.0 32 X X X
msvc-10.0 64 X X X
msvc-11.0 32 X X X
msvc-11.0 64 X X X
msvc-12.0 32 X X X
msvc-12.0 64 X X X
msvc-14.0 32 X X X
msvc-14.0 64 X X X
msvc-14.1 32 X X X
msvc-14.1 64 X X X

Compile means that the b2 command completed without errors
Link means that visual studio was able to link a sample executable to a
library (libboost_thread-vcXXX-mt[-gd]-1_XX.lib) generated
Execute means that the linked program executed without errors.
