That's what I said. g++-6 and up (and clang++-6.0 and up) are C++14 by

As far as I can see, the major problem with b2 dropping C++03 was not the
fact that it happened, but that it happened without Boost announcing that
C++03 is no longer supported for building Boost.

Technically, you could still build Boost if you compiled just b2
with -std=c++11, but in the real world nobody cares for that distinction.
Boost doesn't build, and that's that.
